About

The Logic and Theory of Science programme of Eötvös Loránd University focuses on logic and its applications in the philosophy of science, particularly in the foundations of mathematics, physics, linguistics, and the social sciences.

Overview

The Logic and Theory of Science programme of Eötvös Loránd University aims at developing research abilities of the students. Its central part is the Logic and its Applications Seminar at the Department of Logic, where students and staff members together discuss their work in progress. The most often occurring topics of the seminar are set theory and model theory in their philosophical connections, philosophy of mathematics in general, formalisation of physical theories, such as special and general relativity within different logical frameworks. Students get acquainted with the research works of the staff of the department and its partner and join a research program in order to write their own thesis. They are required to give two presentations of their work during the two years.

This program is recommended to applicants who are planning to pursue doctoral studies in philosophy, mathematics, physics, linguistics.

This program enables students to apply for doctoral programs in various areas: philosophy, mathematics, physics, linguistics.
