Posted: 3rd November 2015

The Oxford Strachey Lectures in Computer Science are generously supported by OxFORD Asset Management.

Professor Johan van Benthem, Professor of Logic, (University of Amsterdam) and Philosophy (Stanford) will deliver the Strachey Lecture ‘The World of Logic, Computation and Agency’ on Tuesday 1 December in Lecture Theatre B, E-Science Building, 7 Keble Road at 14:00.

'Logic, computation and human agency form a tightly knit family of themes and results, where new connections keep appearing. I will discuss these family affairs with a focus on games as a unifying paradigm. I start with some (Whig) history of ideas at the interface of logic, computer science, and game theory, and move toward the present and future of what may well be seen as one discipline in the making.'
