Upcoming Talks

Some news on upcoming presentations by team members: Having barely started, Singa will already present some of her ideas on the Is-Ought Gap in a talk on Hume’s Law under Different Mathematical Guises at the GAP PhD-student workshop 2019 on Mathematical Philosophy in Munich. Moreover, Martin will be explaining What Time is it in Other Possible Worlds in Nantes at a workshop on Correlating Possibilities.

New team member

We are delighted to announce that Singa Behrens will be joining our team as a PhD researcher, with a planned start date of 1 August. Singa’s current and recent research is focused, among other things, on the grounds of normative facts, and the question of the logical and metaphysical autonomy of the normative realm. We are very happy to have her on board!
