The Tilburg Center for Logic, Ethics, and Philosophy of Science (TiLPS) studies knowledge, reasoning, and value in all their forms.
History and Mission
The Center was founded in 2007 in
order to promote a novel style of philosophical research. TiLPS researchers
typically combine different philosophical techniques in solving a problem,
rather than relying on a single method. Among them are conceptual analysis,
logical deduction, mathematical modeling, psychological experiments,
simulations, and case studies.
Raoul Gervais has received funding from the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) for his research project entitled 'Causality in cognitive science and philosophy of mind'. He will shortly start his postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Antwerp.
Scientific Collaboration Community
TiLPS is now part of a scientific collaboration community ('wetenschappelijke onderzoeksgemeenschap') funded by the Flanders Research Foundation FWO directed by Prof. Dr. Erik Weber, Ghent University. The topic of the research is 'Logical & Methodological Analysis of Scientific Reasoning Processes'. Other participants include the Free University Brussels, the University of Antwerp, the Free University Amsterdam, and University College London.
