Festschrift for Jean Paul van Bendegem on the occasion of his 60th birthday
Patrick Allo and Bart van Kerkhove, eds
Commenting on scientific and cultural developments through various media in his native region Flanders, Jean Paul Van Bendegem (b. 1953) has been a relatively well known philosopher for many years now. Although the entirety of his work is based on the very same humanistic principles, his
ventures in logic and in the philosophy of mathematics have received less attention in these public fora.
For this Festschrift at the age of sixty, some of Van Bendegemís most important intellectual associates in these areas (colleagues and friends, often both), address topics that have been central to their intellectual exchanges with him. More often than not, these are connected in some way or another to Van Bendegemís notoriously staunch finitism and focus on the human aspect of mathematics, the sciences, and indeed, even logic.
