Lecture Series: Models of Time and Probability | Hannes Leitgeb: Mathematical Philosophy: Past, Present, Future

Jan 19, 2023 | 06:00 PM

The lecture series are part of the Thematic Einstein Forum "Scales of Temporality: Modeling Time and Predictability in the Literary and the Mathematical Sciences". The forum is organised within the framework of the Berlin Mathematics Research Center MATH+ in collaboration with EXC 2020 “Temporal Communities” and supported by the Einstein Foundation Berlin.

The collaborative Thematic Einstein Forum Scales of Temporality: Modeling Time and Predictability in the Literary and the Mathematical Sciences aims to explore shared interests, common grounds and similar problems both the mathematical sciences and the Humanities, particularly the philologies and the literary studies, entail.  

In the lecture series "Models of Time and Probability", experts from mathematics (dynamical systems, analysis, probability theory, applications and modelling, biomathematics) and from literary studies (narratology, rhetoric, literary history and philosophy) will give lectures to an open audience.

Hannes Leitgeb (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy) on "Mathematical Philosophy: Past, Present, Future":

"Mathematical/formal philosophy“ refers to the application of logical and mathematical methods to philosophical problems and questions. In recent decades, this mathematical way of doing philosophy has become a great success story. The talk will explain why this is so, how mathematics can be applied in philosophy, and what the future of mathematical philosophy might be like. Some of the examples in the talk will relate to the “models of time and probability“ theme of the lecture series.

Upcoming lectures:

26.01.23 | Xue-Mei Li (Imperial College London): Noise and Scales

2.02.23 | Paul Hager (HU Berlin): Time Scales in Rough Volatility

More information about the lecture series can also be found on the MATH+ website. The lectures start at 6:00 pm. Participation is possible both in person and online.
