2024 will mark the centennial of the birth of Paul K. Feyerabend and thirty years from his passing. Feyerabend was one of the most influential philosophers of science of the twentieth century, and his work helped pave the way for later developments in science and values, political philosophy of science, feminist and postcolonial science studies, the philosophy of scientific practice, and integrated history and philosophy of science. His masterwork, Against Method, was published nearly half a century ago, but we still have much to learn from reading Feyerabend's works and carrying them forward to new problems and projects. This year's Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology Conference will focus on the work of Paul K. Feyerabend and Feyerabendian themes in contemporary history and philosophy of science, science & technology studies, science policy, and other relevant areas.
