CfP: Workshop on Experimental Philosophy of Science

October 15-16, 2019 at Aarhus University in Denmark

Experimental methods in philosophy were pioneered in the early 2000s and have been on the rise ever since. Experimental philosophy is not uncontroversial, but it is undeniable that it has forced philosophers to critically reflect on traditional ‘armchair’ philosophizing. In the philosophy of science experimental approaches have hitherto been comparably dormant. This is in some sense surprising: one may think that philosophers of science would be particularly receptive to approaches that promise more scientificity. It is the aim of this conference to explore reasons for this slow uptake and to encourage ways of bringing experimental methods to bear also in the philosophy of science by discussing opportunities and problems.
