Conference description:

Philosophy of science studies the foundations, methods, and implications of the sciences from a philosophical perspective. Classic topics in philosophy of science include the relation between theory and observation, the rational justification of scientific methods, the functions of experiment, and the interpretation of scientific theories such as quantum theory and evolution theory. Philosophers of science also frequently discuss such wider topics as cognition, the relation between science and the arts and culture, and the findings of history and social studies of science.

 

This annual international five-day conference is a forum for the presentation and discussion of new research in philosophy of science. Each year’s meeting focuses on three broad themes, but the organizers welcome papers in other topical areas of philosophy of science too. A session usually consists of a 45-minute paper followed by a 30-minute discussion period; extended lunch and coffee breaks are an important element of the programme. The atmosphere is informal and friendly. Whereas most participants are researchers in philosophy of science, the organizers encourage also scientists and scholars in history and social studies of science to participate.

 

Conference themes for 2021:

Philosophy of Biology

Cognitive Science

Feminism and Science
