The Past, Present, and Future of Integrated History and Philosophy of Science: An International Postgraduate Forum

January 13-14, 2017, University of Leeds

Integrated History and Philosophy of Science (IHPS) is commonly understood as the study of science from a combined historical and philosophical perspective. Yet since its gradual formation as a research field there has been constant discussion about how to suitably integrate the two disciplines. IHPS remains an ever-shifting, highly demanding and disparate area of research which incorporates a multitude of different subjects and methodologies. The Centre for the History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Leeds celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2016-17; we see this as an opportunity to create a dialogue amongst early career scholars about the future of the field by drawing upon lessons from past achievements, and reflecting upon current problems within IHPS.

Registration for the event is £10, which will cover lunch and refreshments on both days.

Numbers are limited therefore if you wish to attend this event you must register via the University of Leeds’ online store: http://store.leeds.ac.uk/browse/product.asp?compid=1&modid=1&catid=773
