Applications are invited for Three Doctoral Fellowships at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) (LMU Munich) to study in Germany. International students are eligible to apply for this fellowship.
The aim of the fellowship is to provide financial support to international students.
Mathematical Philosophy, i.e. the application of mathematical methods in philosophy, is experiencing a tremendous boom in various areas of philosophy. Mathematical methods are now used not only in epistemology, the philosophy of language, the philosophy of science, and the philosophy of mathematics but also in ethics, political philosophy and even in the philosophy of religion.
