**PhD Program in Cognitive Neuroscience and Philosophy of Mind** ***IUSS Pavia* / *San Raffaele University Milan* */Epistemology and Philosophy of Mathematics and Logic/* (/*eMath*/) /*Project*/ http://www.iusspavia.it/en/-/emath_project <http://www.iusspavia.it/projects>* A call for **2 three-year fully funded PhD positions** funded by IUSS research program */Epistemology and Philosophy of Mathematics and Logic/* (/*eMath*/) is open within the PhD Program in *Cognitive Neuroscience and Philosophy of Mind*, promoted by a consortium between the School for Advanced Studies IUSS Pavia and Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan. A total of *5 PhD positions* is available, the remaining three of which in the areas covered by the PhD Program - including (a) Theoretical syntax and neurolinguistics; (b) Cognitive and neurocognitive science; (c) Philosophy (see http://www.iusspavia.it/research-fields2). The /*Epistemology of Mathematics and Logic*/ project promotes advanced research, activities, and networking in the areas of the epistemology and philosophy of mathematics and logic. Research is fostered on several themes concerning major contemporary debates in the philosophy of mathematics and logic, especially when merging technical and formal skills with broader theoretical issues in epistemology, ontology, logic, philosophy of language and philosophy of science. Within this broader field of interests, the following are privileged - although non-exclusive - areas of inquiry: * the nature of mathematical and logical knowledge; * epistemic problems of the major philosophical accounts of mathematics (logicism, neo-logicism, structuralism, nominalism, fictionalism, etc.); * origins and heritage of classical foundational projects, with particular attentions to the logicist, formalist, intuitionist and structuralist traditions; * issues concerning mathematical definitions, especially as abstractionist programmes are concerned; * semantic issues for logical and mathematical language; * the applicability of mathematics and philosophical issues concerning mathematical practice; * the nature of mathematical explanation and its interactions with scientific and logical explanation; * the application of theories of grounding to the metaphysics and epistemology of mathematics and logic; * the justification and revisability of classical and non-classical logical laws; * abductive methodology in the choice of logical and mathematical theories; * applications of experimental epistemology to mathematics and logic; * problems of philosophical methodology and the justification of logical and mathematical theories; * pluralist and relativist views in logic and mathematics. The project regularly organizes scientific activities (workshop, seminars, reading groups, masterclasses, etc.), incoming and outgoing visiting exchanges are promoted for both younger and established scholars, and dissemination of knowledge via teaching, participation to conferences and publications is encouraged.
