LoPhisc: Master in Logic, Philosophy of Science & Epistemology, Paris, FRANCE

The Master LoPhisc in Logic, Philosophy of Science & Epistemology jointly 
administered by Pantheon-Sorbonne University (Paris 1) and Paris-Sorbonne 
University (Paris 4) is a 2-year graduate programme which provides 
students with the opportunity to work in depth within a particular area of 
the field, while acquiring advanced knowledge across the breadth of these 
disciplines. The course welcomes students from a range of disciplines who 
want to acquire a high level of competence in one of the areas of the 
programme, as well as analytical, communication and research skills. 
The LoPhiSC programme is set in a thriving research environment, with 
outstanding research and teaching staff. Students will conduct research 
and attend lectures mainly at the Sorbonne in Paris and at other 
affiliated academic institutions in central Paris, which provide extra 
learning opportunities in neighbouring fields such as cognitive science. 
On completion of the programme, students will be in a position to begin 
work on a PhD dissertation (a small number of doctoral scholarships are 
available to outstanding students from the European Union). Graduates will 
be also well positioned to complete their training in view of a variety of 
careers involving a critical understanding of science, in education, 
scientific journalism and web-based information, scientific administration 
and policy-making, or expertise. Lectures and seminars are generally given 
in French, although quite a lot of the required reading is in English. 
Some initial command of French is thus necessary, but can be improved 
along the way. If you are interested in the LoPhisc, please contact one of 
the two directors: Max Kistler (Universit Panthon-Sorbonne / Paris 1) 
( Jean-Baptiste Rauzy (Universit 
Paris-Sorbonne / Paris 4) ( To

will take place on May 29th, from 2pm to 4pm, at the Maison de la 
Recherche (28 rue Serpente, Paris 6th). Researchers teaching in the Master 
as well as current and former students will be present and everybody's

Max Kistler and Jean-Baptiste Rauzy, co-directors of the programme.
