Paolo Mancosu receives Humboldt Research Award

Congratulations to Paolo Mancosu, who will be receiving the Carl Friedrich von Siemens Research Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The Humboldt Foundation describes the award as granted to “internationally renowned academics… whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future.” Previous distinguished recipients of the award include our own Jay Wallace. Paolo will use the award to spend the Spring semester of 2018 at the Center for Mathematical Philosophy at the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich, following a planned Fall semester sabbatical in Italy.
