Workshop on Intensionality in Mathematics

Saturday and Sunday, May 11-12, 2013, Kungshuset, Lundagard

The theme of the workshop is the mathematical and philosophical investigation of the choice of background models, with particular attention to models for computation and the choice of axiom systems for arithmetic which have great importance for the epistemology of mathematics. The specific light in which these topics will be investigated is the role of intensionality. The general aim of the workshop is to foster the dialogue among researches working on issues related to intensionality in logic, philosophy of language, philosophy of mathematics, computer science, computability theory, number theory and also study the reasons for intensionality from the cognitive science perspective.

Immediately preceding the present event is a workshop on the Philosophy of Information and Information Quality (Friday, May 10).
