Summer school: Physics and Philosophy of Time, 23-28 July 2013, Munich, GERMANY

http://www.unil.ch/philo/page95121.html

Organized and sponsored by the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy and 
the Chair for Philosophy of Science in the Faculty of Humanities of the 
University of Lausanne

The focus of this summer school will be to appreciate how physics and 
philosophy interact to contribute to our understanding of the nature of time. 
Our goal is to bring together scholars from both areas to consider central 
aspects of time as they arise in various physical theories, as well as how 
traditional philosophical questions regarding time may both motivate physical 
theorizing and find themselves constrained by it. In particular, we shall 
consider what statistical physics, the special and general theories of 
relativity, quantum mechanics, and recent developments in quantum gravity imply 
for our understanding of (space and) time. The relevant scientific theories 
consider, among many other topics, the physics of motion, the nature of the 
continuum, and the geometry of flat and curved spaces. Although the summer 
school will also consider more straightforwardly philosophical issues, the 
primary focus will be on the foundations of spacetime as the philosophy of
physics is concerned with.

Scientific committee:
Stephan Hartmann (Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich)
Michael Esfeld (University of Lausanne)
Christian Wthrich (University of California, San Diego)
Detlef Drr (Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich)
