FSB focuses on issues in the foundations of mathematics, as well as philosophy of mathematics and logic more widely construed.
Some of our research interests are theories of truth, set theory, structuralism in the philosohy of mathematics, homotopy type theory as a foundation for mathematics, logics for epistemology.
