The Understanding Reflection Conference 2022

The aim of this event is to gather philosophical logicians, epistemologists, and philosophers of mathematics. Munich, 20th to 22nd June


This conference will make progress on the analysis of what exactly makes our knowledge of mathematical and logical principles possible. Questions concerning our knowledge of mathematical and logical principles will be addressed from a perspective that integrates philosophical logic, the philosophy of mathematics, epistemology, and the philosophy of language. The questions will include, but will not be limited to, how our confidence in different kinds of reflection principles (formal statements that assert an implication between the provability of a class of sentences and their truth) can be justified.


It will be held in Munich next week, from 20th to 22nd June. Here is a link to the conference website:
