BIAP Wokshop on Evidence

Girona, 20th-21st February 2020


From 2010 – 2014, the LOGOS research group at the University of Barcelona joined with research groups in philosophy of law at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra and the Universitat de Girona in a large-scale research project titled PERSP: Philosophy of Perspectival Thoughts and Facts. PERSP was financed by the Spanish Consolider program, and it generated an enormous amount of philosophical activity and research output, forging ties between researchers at diverse universities that persisted well after PERSP’s funding ended. In order to formalize the partnership between the diverse analytic-tradition philosophy groups in Catalunya, the three universities (UB, UPF, UdG) came together to create the Barcelona Institute of Analytic Philosophy. BIAP’s mission is to continue and strengthen the collaborative connections between its member research groups, and host future joint research projects funded at the state and international levels.
