of mathematical explanation from philosophical and from educational/psycho
logical perspectives. The idea is to bring together philosophers of mathem

iscuss how developments in their own fields could meaningfully contribute
to the work on mathematical explanation where their fields intersect. In p
articular\, we want to explore the ways in which mathematical explanation
engenders understanding\, by focusing on (1) the relationship between diff

the mathematics classroom\, and (3) work at the intersection of these two

NEW SCHOOL FO R SOCIAL RESEARCH PHILOSOPHY GRADUATE CONFERENCE

\nKeynote Speakers: Cary Wolfe (Rice) and Lori Gruen (Wesleyan)

\nThis conference seeks to explore the relationship between animals and their environs\, as well as the philosophical traditions that speak to these complex notions. We in vite participants to question if and how philosophy’s treatment of animals and their environs can help us make sense of our current ecological situa tion. How have considerations of habitat\, dominion\, and domesticity dete rmined the (ethical\, ontological\, rhetorical) status of animals? Convers ely\, how have presuppositions about “the animal” informed what environs a re proper to “man”? What would it mean for an animal to be “at home” in th e current world? Can philosophical approaches to animals be more than an i nstrumentalizing procedure? How will climate change alter not only the vit ality of a species but the very grounds from which it lays claim to a home ?

\nWe welcome paper submissions of no more than 2500 words\, that a re prepared for a blind review\, and suitable for a 15-20 minute long pres entation.

\nEmail your submission (in PDF format) to tns.animalhouse @gmail.com with “Animalhouse Submission” in the subject line. In your emai l\, please include the following details: (a) author’s name\; (b) paper ti tle\; (c) institutional affiliation\; (d) contact information\; and (e) ab stract of no more than 250 words. Please do not include your name on the p aper you are submitting. The deadline for submissions is December 31\, 201 9. Accepted speakers will be notified by February 1\, 2020.

Potentialism is the view in the philosophy of mathematics that one’s mathematical unive rse\, whether in arithmetic or set theory\, is never fully completed\, but rather unfolds gradually as new parts of it increasingly come into existe nce or become accessible or known to us. As in the classical dispute betwe en actual versus potential infinity\, the potentialist holds that objects in the upper or outer reaches have potential as opposed to actual existenc e\, in the sense that one can imagine forming or discovering always more o bjects from that realm\, as many as desired\, but the task is never comple ted. Recent work has emphasized the modal aspect of potentialism\, and in this talk\, I shall describe a general model-theoretic account of the mod al logic of potentialism\, identifying specific modal principles that hold or fail depending on features of the potentialist system under considerat ion. This work makes use of modal control statements\, such as buttons\, s witches\, dials and ratchets and the connection of these kinds of statemen ts with the modal theories S4\, S4.2\, S4.3 and S5. I shall take the vario us natural kinds of arithmetic and set-theoretic potentialism as illustrat ive cases.

\nThis is joint work in separate projects with Øystein Li nnebo\, Victoria Gitman\, Roman Kossak and W. Hugh Woodin. See http://jdh.hamkins.org/the-modal-princ iples-of-potentialism-logic-and-metaphysics-workshop-cuny-november-2017/ for questions and commentary concerning this talk.

\nFrom basic arithmetic to the calculation of rocket trajectories\, m athematics provides an elegant means of systematically understanding and q uantifying the world around us. Beyond its computational functions\, howev er\, mathematics serves an even more vital purpose: It illuminates the mos t fundamental knowledge of our universe\, furnishing the tools that classi cal physics\, quantum mechanics\, and astronomy use to develop and build u pon their findings.

\nBut why should mathematics be so effective in explaining our universe\, as first noted by Nobel laureate physicist Eugen e Wigner? Why have fundamental laws discovered through pure mathematics tu rned out to describe the behavior of our physical world with such remarkab le precision\, from the fundamental law of gravitation to Maxwell’s electr omagnetic equations? Given that our physical universe is comprised of math ematical properties\, some have posited that mathematics is the language o f the universe\, whose laws reveal what appears to be a hidden order in th e natural world. But are there also limits to what mathematics can reveal about the mystery of our universe?

\n\nJoin us for a conversation with Robin W all Kimmerer as she helps us rethink\, reimagine and\, renarrate our r elationship to the sacred and the natural world. Can the objective\, data- driven approach of science be enriched by non-anthropocentric spiritual wo rldviews? As a botanist and a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation\, Dr . Kimmerer draws on both indigenous wisdom and scientific knowledge to enr ich and animate our understanding of the natural world. This expansive way of seeing and relating to creation privileges regeneration and reciprocit y\, and offers novel solutions for ecological restoration and climate chan ge resilience.

\nDr. Kimmerer will be joined in conversation with Un ion faculty member John Thatamanil\, and Geraldine Ann Patrick Encina\, Scholar in Residence for Union’s Center for Earth Ethics.
