Three FSU philosophy graduate students to present at the 14th Biennial Congress of the International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science
Jared Ifland, Romy Vekony, and Robert Voelker have each been selected to present their papers at the 14th Biennial Congress of the International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science. The conference is known as one of the leading conferences for the history of philosophy of science and related topics. Jared Ifland will present “Induction, Conceptual Spaces, and Homotopy: A Response on Carnap’s Behalf," where he argues that current efforts to revitalize Rudolf Carnap’s late inductive logic are aided by recent developments in the foundations of mathematics. Romy Vekony will present "Belief, Acceptance and Pragmatic Equivalence," where they import J.L. Cohen’s distinction between belief and acceptance to strengthen Bas van Fraassen’s formulation of empiricist structuralism. Robert Voelker will present "Carnap's Pragmatic Expressivism and the Syntactic-Semantic View of Theories," where he reconciles the syntactic view of theories and the pragmatic view by construing the pragmatic aspects of the syntactic view expressivistically. The conference will occur at the University of California, Irvine from June 20-23, 2022.
