The second and last day of the workshop Dynamics and Reason – Du Châtelet and Kant started with the talk “On the Difficulties in Accepting Newton’s Dynamics” by Hartmut Hecht from the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy!
We were excited to hear the incredibly interesting talks by Silvia De Bianchi, Aurora Yu and Michael Veldman! Emily Carson closed the conference with her talk “Revisiting Kant and du Châtelet on mathematical truth”.
A huge thank you to every speaker that came to Paderborn! It was a very exciting workshop and we are thankful for all the fruitful discussions!
