SILFS Prize for Women in Logic and Philosophy of Science awarded


The Società Italiana di Logica e Filosofia delle Scienze / Italian Society for Logic and Philosophy of Science (SILFS) has announced the recipients of its 2020 Prize for Women in Logic and Philosophy of Science.

The prize rewards the writings of women in logic and philosophy of science.

This year, SILFS selected two women for the prize: Anne Sophie Meincke (University of Vienna) and Anela Lolic (University of Technology Vienna). Here are the descriptions of their work from the award announcement:

Anne-Sophie Meincke – A view of the pregnancy process
Since Aristotle, substances have enjoyed a kind of ontological primacy, which has shaped our language and our thought. Anne Sophie Meincke asks us to look at the world around us in terms of process rather than entities, and therefore of a pregnant individual as a process – a “bifurcating hypercomplex process”. This innovative perspective appears capable of opening up promising avenues of research and of generating fruitful debates, not only in the field of the metaphysics of pregnancy, but also in the fields of the philosophy of biology, ethics and science. bioethics.

Anela Lolic – Towards the analysis of mathematical proofs: elimination by cut and Herbrand’s theorem in the presence of induction
The work proposed by Anela Lolic belongs to an emerging research axis, dedicated to the analysis of mathematical proofs based on the methods of the structural theory of proof. The work is characterized by originality, remarkable formal sophistication and an expert fusion of established methods of mathematical logic and recent methodologies.
