About the DCLPS

The DCLPS is located at the Chair of Theoretical Philosophy of the University of Duesseldorf. It cooperates and is in lively exchange with the Department of Philosophy of the University of Duesseldorf, with the Duesseldorf Collaborative Research Centre SFB 991, and with related research centers throughout the world. 

The DCLPS supports investigations in logic and philosophy of science in all their dimensions. Thereby its focus lies on the application of formal methods to philosophy of science, epistemology, and cognitive science. More recently we also apply computer simulations or empirical experiments. Each year the DCLPS organizes a multitude of activites and events including
