The conference is organized in the context of the project


The project is funded by l’Agence Nationale de Recherche and hosted by IHPST (UMR 8590)

Principal Investigator: Francesca Poggiolesi

The three main aims of the project are: to elaborate a general account of grounding in the conceptual sciences, based on Bolzano’s insights; to unify the debate on grounding and mathematical explanation; to unify the debate on grounding and causation.
