Society for Philosophy of Science in Practice (SPSP) Sixth Conference
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The Society for Philosophy of Science in Practice (SPSP) is an interdisciplinary community of scholars who approach the philosophy of science with a focus on scientific practice and the practical uses of scientific knowledge. For further details on our objectives, see our mission statement on our website at http://www.philosophy-science-practice.org/en/mission-statement/.
The SPSP conferences provide a broad forum for scholars committed to making detailed and systematic studies of scientific practices — neither dismissing concerns about truth and rationality, nor ignoring contextual and pragmatic factors. The conferences aim at cutting through traditional disciplinary barriers and developing novel approaches. We welcome contributions from not only philosophers of science, but also philosophers working in epistemology and ethics, as well as the philosophy of engineering, technology, medicine, agriculture, and other practical fields. Additionally, we welcome contributions from historians and sociologists of science, pure and applied scientists, and any others with an interest in philosophical questions regarding scientific practice.
There will also be a graduate student workshop before the conference, and a smaller workshop on “Race and Inclusion in Science and Science Policy,” co-sponsored with The Consortium for Socially Relevant Philosophy of/in Science and Engineering (SRPoiSE) after the conference, with further details to be announced shortly.
