About

Our Master (MA) program in Logic and Philosophy of Science offered by Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Munich was founded in October 2012. It is an international MA program of the Faculty of Philosophy, Philosophy of Science and Religious Studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich.

Overview

Key facts

Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Munich has a long-standing tradition in both philosophy of science and logic reaching back to the time of Wolfgang Stegmüller and Kurt Schütte. In recent years, this tradition has been revived by establishing two new chairs in logic and philosophy of language (held by Hannes Leitgeb) and in philosophy of science (held by Stephan Hartmann), and by founding the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP). Hannes Leitgeb was awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Professorship by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in 2010. In April 2012, a second Alexander von Humboldt Professorship was awarded to Stephan Hartmann.

The MCMP provides a lively environment for studying Logic and Philosophy of Science. The MCMP is embedded into the Faculty of Philosophy, Philosophy of Science and Religious Studies at LMU which is one of the largest in the German-speaking world, covering a wealth of philosophical research areas, and attracting students and researchers from around the world.
