Research stay at Institute for Logic, Language and Computation in Amsterdam

One of the research assistants in the BIOUNCERTAINTY project, Mariusz Maziarz, was invited to ILLC at the University of Amsterdam under the European Philosophy of Science Association (EPSA) Fellowship scheme to conduct his research.

The Fellowship was sponsored by Institute for Logic, Language and Computation and took place during November and early December. Under the supervision of Federica Russo, Mariusz Maziarz tackled two research questions related to causal inferences in biomedicine. First, he worked on reconstructing the meaning of causal claims put forward by contemporary researchers. The analysis of research methods used to support causal claims, conducted from the perspective of referentialist semantics, leads to the conclusion that biomedicine is pluralist regarding the notion of ‘cause’. Second, Mariusz Maziarz addressed the question of how to make informative inferences from strains of epidemiological and clinical literature including inconsistent results. The expected outcomes of the research are going to improve the use of biomedical results in clinical practice.
