The general subject of the conference are problems of philosophical ontology, epistemology, philosophy of science, and philosophy of mind that are formulated or solved using formal methods (as defined in logic, mathematics, formal linguistics, theoretical computer science, information science, AI) and/or with references to the results of natural and social sciences.

The following special topics will be addressed: use of formal methods in philosophy; philosophical analysis of scientific notions (natural law, matter, change, cause, chance, time, space, uncertainty, quantum phenomena, probability, social interaction); philosophical analysis of scientific methods (formalisms, rationality, values and norms, etc.); the role and use of scientific notions and methods in philosophy (formal systems in philosophy, critical analysis, systematic philosophy, etc.).

A special session will be dedicated to Berislav Žarnić (1959-2017) and to any topic of his interest in philosophical logic and formal philosophy, http://marul.ffst.hr/~berislav/doku.php.
