Seventh International Conference on Integrated History and Philosophy of Science
- External/Cooperation Event
- Dept. I
&HPS is distinctive in that it is both historical and philosophical at the same time. This year’s theme, “evolution of knowledge” aims at refocusing the history and philosophy of science on long-term and global aspects. In picking this topic, we pick up on a recent trend in the history of science, which has increasingly transcended micro-histories paying attention to global contexts and long-term developments. What are the implications of this widened focus for philosophical and theoretical reflections on science and knowledge? What can such broader studies of macro and global history in turn learn from philosophical and theoretical investigations?
