Award winning member

At the GAP.8 conference (taking place this September in Konstanz), the German Association for Analytic Philosophy will award the prestiguous Wolfgang-Stegmüller-Preis, which will be awarded to three people.
Confirmed rumour has it that one of the winners of the Stegmüller-Preis is a member of our Nominalizations project:

  • Stephan Krämer for his dissertation Second-order Quantification and Ontological Commitment

I am happy about these news, and I am very proud of Stephan.


PS: As you can read here, this is not my only reason for being happy and proud …
