Feyerabend’s provocative proposals continue to incite an extensive assortment of heated discussions across a range of inter-related disciplines that has proven to be of interest to a broad audience from diverse backgrounds all around the world.

Given the current state of the art, the conference has two closely related main aims. First, it is intended to encourage research by internationally renowned scholars who have worked on Feyerabend’s philosophy, in an attempt to do justice to the notorious complexity of his ideas and their relevance to ongoing debates in contemporary science studies. The second main aim of the conference is to promote the pressing issues concerning the nature of science and its impact on society and how they are structured. Such issues were central to Feyerabend’s philosophy as he repeatedly redeveloped it from the positivist climate prevalent in the 1950s to the post-modernist climate of the 1990s.

Conference language: English.

A few travel bursaries for graduate students are available. If you wish to be considered please submit a CV and a travel budget in addition to your abstract.
