Foundational Studies Bristol

Foundational Studies Bristol (FSB) is a research group at the University of Bristol focusing on issues in the foundations of mathematics, as well as logic and philosophy of mathematics more widely construed.

FSB is a collaboration between members of the Department of Philosophy and the School of Mathematics. We are also part of the Centre for Science and Philosophy

We run a programme of regular seminars and reading groups, as well as conferences and workshops within the group's research theme. We also regularly host visiting researchers

For a sample of our recent publications see our research page. We also regularly host research projects. Our research generally focuses on logic and philosophy of mathematics. Some of our specific research interests are formal theories of truth, set theory and homotopy type theory. 

If you're interested in visiting or joining FSB, there's some information on our join FSB page.
