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.
