Philosophy of Science Seminar on Interdisciplinary Research
At 16.15 on Friday, February the 21st, in room 336, Jakobi 2, we begin with a new series of seminars in philosophy of science focusing on interdisciplinary research (the schedule can be found below). In the seminars we cover topics such as: how disciplines and their boundaries take shape, why disciplinary boundaries need to be crossed, what has changed in research practices, science evaluation and relations between science and the public due to the shift towards interdisciplinarity. Phenomena such as epistemic dependence, scientific imperialism, disciplinary emotions, etc will be discussed on the basis of recent philosophy of science literature. In sociology and history of science, interdisciplinarity has received a lot of attention, whereas in philosophy this topic is relatively new. In our research project, we aim to study the existing literature on the topic and contribute to the current debate.
Everybody is welcome to attend the seminars. Please read the main seminar text beforehand. In order to get the seminar texts, please contact Riin Kõiv riin.koiv(at)ut.ee
Due to the state or emergency all seminars have been postponed
