CfP: 'Scientific Reasoning in Action: From the Early Modern Period to 1900'

Workshop on

Scientific Reasoning in Action: From the Early Modern Period to 1900

Ghent University, 10-12 October 2018

 
The scope of this workshop
The international workshop ‘Scientific Reasoning in Action: From the Early Modern Period to 1900’ seeks to scrutinize scientific reasoning processes in actual scientific practice (induction, transduction, abduction, analogical and statistical reasoning, and, in general, reasoning from observational and experimental information, and collecting historical and experimental histories), ranging from the early modern period to 1900. Submissions on all scientific disciplines during this period will be considered. Ideally, submissions should approach scientific reasoning processes from an Integrated History and Philosophy of Science perspective, i.e. they should integrate historical and philosophical perspectives in their analyses. More historically oriented submissions are however welcomed insofar as the material they cover has the potential to engender interesting philosophical analyses.
