On 27 October this workshop will bring together philosophers and physicists inspired by the work of Miklós Rédei to discuss new work on the foundations of quantum physics.

Professor Miklós RédeiProfessor Miklós Rédei, a Doctor of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, is Professor of Philosophy and Head of Department at LSE’s Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method. Since earning his PhD in 1982, our hero Professor Rédei has been a constant leading influence on the philosophy and the foundations of physics, especially in the application of mathematical techniques to clarify the philosophical foundations of quantum theory. His friends and colleagues also know him as an indefatigable source of inspiration, charm, and poetic commentary on both Nature and Humanity. To thank him for this (and a great deal more), they arranged a conference in his honour, on the occasion of his 65th birthday.

Speakers include: Klaus Fredenhagen, Márton Gömöri, Balázs Gyenis, Zalán Gyenis, Gábor Hofer-Szabó, Kasia Rejzner, Bryan W. Roberts, László Szabó, Giovanni Valente, and Charlotte Werndl.
