First Hamburg Summer School in Philosophy: Timothy Williamson, Quantification and Modality, 10-14 Sep 2012, Hamburg, GERMANY

We are delighted to announce the first annual Hamburg Summer School, which will take place on 10-14 
September 2012, at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Hamburg. This year's speaker 
is Prof. Timothy Williamson (Wykeham Professor of Logic, New College, Oxford). He will give 
lectures on quantification and modality, based on his forthcoming book on those issues. The course 
is open for a limited number of external participants. Prospective participants are asked to 
prepare for the course by studying the first three chapters of Williamson's book, which will be 
made available in due course. Please note that there is a small registration fee of 20, which will 
allow us to provide coffee and sweets during breaks.

If you would like to participate, please send an email, with brief CV appended, to 
sommerkurs-at-gmx-dot-de. In case there are more applicants than places, we will unfortunately 
have to reject some applications. Our aim is to send out confirmation emails by the 1st of August.

For more information on the summer school, including accommodation and travel suggestions, please

Prof. Dr. Benjamin Schnieder,
