Choice Group

The LSE Choice Group is a group of philosophers, political scientists and economists based mainly at the LSE and with a shared interest in the theory of rational decision making in individuals and groups and its application to economic, political and social questions.


Managing Severe Uncertainty

In collaboration with economists and climate scientists in other departments at LSE (and elsewhere), this project has the following objectives: to examine policy decision making under conditions of severe uncertainty; to study scientific models that are both imperfect and non-linear, especially those of the climate and of climate change; to study the implications for climate policy-making of the inherent limitations we face in making predictions about relevant climate variables, in relation both to our ability to assess the impact of possible interventions and to our ethical assessment of them, and to propose techniques for dealing with these limitations.


Sigma Club

The Sigma Club is the Philosophy of Physics Project's seminar series. It hosts talks dealing with issues in the philosophy, methodology and foundations of modern physics broadly construed. Seminars take place in the seminar room of CPNSS (LAK 206) on selected Mondays. Everybody is welcome to attend. 


BSPS London Meetings

The CPNSS hosts every year the London Meetings of the British Society for the Philosophy of Science.
