The weekly Logic and Philosophy of Science Seminar (LPS) is organized and hosted by the Department of Logic, Institute of Philosophy at the Faculty of Humanities of Eötvös Loránd University Budapest. It aims to bring together not only the Budapest philosophy community working on a wide range of logic and philosophy of science, but also scientists interested in philosophical and foundational problems of natural and social sciences. The regular participants come from the following institutions:
It must be emphasized, however, that the Seminar is open to everyone, including students, visitors, and faculty members from all departments and institutes.

The Seminar encompasses logic, philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of physics, and all related topics of modern metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of language, history of philosophy, history of science, and particular issues in natural and social sciences, important for the discourses in the main scope of the Seminar.
The friendly and informal atmosphere helps us to freely discuss our topics. The 60 minute lecture is followed by a 10 minute break and a 30-60 minute discussion. The language of the Seminar is English. The audience is a mixture of students and scholars working in various fields. The lecturers are traditionally suggested to ignore this fact: The style of the presentation is supposed to respect the professional people in the audience, with the intention of being comprehensible for the our MA and PhD students too.
The next weeks program is announced as soon as possible. The lecturers are kindly asked to send us a Title/Affiliation/Abstract in good time.

Time & venue: Friday 4:15 PM, Room 224, Building "i", Múzeum krt. 4 (Faculty of Humanities, Eötvös University).
