Foundations Interest Group

Meeting time: Tuesdays, 4:00-6:30pm in conjunction with PHIL 8210 - Seminar: Logical Theory 
Meeting place: 731 Heller Hall

The foundation's interest group (FIG) reads and discusses works of mutual interest in the philosophy and foundations of mathematics and the philosophy of logic. We select readings for a variety of reasons: to keep up on the most exciting developments in the field, to help participants scrutinize literature relevant to research, to provide feedback on works in progress being written by FIG, to revisit classic articles in the literature, and sometimes just to have fun discussing a topic related to the foundations of mathematics and the philosophy of logic. For more information, please contact Roy T. Cook (cookx432@umn.edu).

Our meetings are informal and some participants need to arrive late or leave early because of scheduling conflicts. All faculty and graduate students from the University of Minnesota and area colleges and universities are welcome to attend whenever they would like (without invitation) and without giving advanced notice. Undergraduates are included by invitation. If you know of an undergraduate who is well-suited and possibly interested, please contact Roy T. Cook (cookx432@umn.edu) so an invitation can be extended.
