CfP: 10th ESHS conference: Science policy and the politics of science, Brussels, 7-10 September 2022

About:  In 2022, the European Society for the History of  Science ( ESHS ) will host its tenth biannual conference. This year’s edition will take place in Brussels, Belgium, and is organised by the National Committee for Logic, History and Philosophy of Science ( NCLHPS ) of Belgium. Theme:  The theme of the ESHS 2022 conference will be  Science Policy and the Politics of Science , a topic with a particular resonance over these past years. The outbreak of Covid-19 has called attention to the shifting legitimacy of science-based expertise and the reliance on expert authority in policy-making by state and national governments. Clearly, this serves as an indication for a need to understand the role of scientists and scholars in society within a broader historical frame.                    From a historiographical viewpoint, the conference will be an opportunity to showcase the latest investigations of scientific institutions across time and space. Beyond the traditional views on history o

3 year Postdoc in Science and Values, Leibniz Uni Hannover, Germany

The Institute of Philosophy at Leibniz Universität Hannover invites applications for a  Post-Doctoral Position  funded by the DFG (the main German public research funding organization). Applicants should have a PhD in philosophy, philosophy of science, history and philosophy of science, bioethics, or similar areas; with an AOS in science and values. The postdoctoral fellow will work with Prof.  Torsten Wilholt  (Leibniz Universität Hannover) and Prof.  Manuela Fernández Pinto  (Universidad de los Andes) as part of the project “ A Philosophical Approach to Biasing Mechanisms in Scientific Research .” The project aims at providing a philosophical analysis that contributes to a better understanding of biasing mechanisms in science. Recent work in philosophy of science has convincingly shown that science is not value-free, and that values, including social and political values, play different roles in the research process. It has also become clear that, values can have both a positive and

The proximity of an event that breaks with routine crosses nowadays liberal societies, leading to the deployment of vast resources directed at understanding, managing and predicting various types of threats. Sudden events such as floods, landslides, wildfires, pandemics and other slow events like climate change are all cumulative and gradual processes that result from the interaction between natural phenomena and collective human agency. Other natural disasters such as earthquakes or volcanic eruptions call  ex post facto  for a set of responsibilities and regulatio

CfP: The Kuhn Centennial Conference: Thomas Kuhn and the 21st Century Philosophy of Science

Thomas Kuhn (1922-1996) is widely considered as one of the most important philosophers of science in the 20 th   century. His book   The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (SSR)   is also regarded as one of the most influential works in the philosophy of science. Kuhn famously introduced the concept of paradigm to analyse the history of science. He also developed the incommensurability thesis. Kuhn’s work contributed to the so-called historical turn in the 20 th   century philosophy of science. Its influence goes beyond philosophy of science and makes a profound impact on history of science, sociology of science, and the social sciences . In commemoration of the 100 th  anniversary of the birth of Kuhn and the 60 th  anniversary of the publication of  SSR , the conference aims to examine Kuhn’s contribution to contemporary philosophy of science, revisit his legacy for the history and philosophy of science, and reflect on the prospect of the Kuhnian philosophy of science.
