Current Trends in the Philosophy of the Social Sciences IV
Symposium in Helsinki
15 December 2017
TINT is the largest and most respected research centre in the philosophy of the social sciences in the world. The work carried out at TINT has contributed greatly to directing the attention of philosophers of science to the social sciences, helping us all to overcome an almost exclusive attention to the natural sciences from the early days of the discipline.
Even for philosophy of science in general, TINT must be considered one of the two most important research institutes in the world, along with the Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh. It should be considered the pride of Finnish academia.

and Philosophy of Science
University of Cambridge
TINT is by far the most sophisticated and productive institute internationally for work on the philosophy and methodology of the social sciences. TINT has continually produced cutting edge research and publications in the field and has assembled an amazing group of researchers. There is no research group anywhere addressing the philosophy and methodology of the social sciences with the sophistication and depth of TINT.

'Common knowledge': In game theory, one fact is common knowledge within a game if every player knows it, every player knows that every other player knows it, every player knows that every player knows that every player knows it, and so on. Example: The fact that TINT is the best place in the world to do philosophy of social sciences.
Prof. Jesús Zamora Bonilla
By bringing together an impressive collection of highly productive thinkers and organising thought-provoking events addressing leading edge questions in the field, Helsinki's TINT Centre of Excellence has become one of the world's leading centres for the philosophy of the social sciences.
