Kant's Logic & Implications for Mathematics
Michiel van Lambalgen (Amsterdam) and Dora Achourioti (Amsterdam) give a talk at MCMP on the completeness of Kant's Table of Judgements and its consequences for the philosophy of mathematics.
The Limits of Understanding
This statement is false. Think about it, and it makes your head hurt. If it's true, it's false. If it's false, it's true. In 1931, Austrian logician Kurt Gödel shocked the worlds of...

One might be brazen enough to say that 'mathematics' and 'computer science', as cultures, deserve no credit at all for any type theoretic developments, but only discredit. People like Curry and Howard were outliers even among 'mathematical logicians ...
