Stanford School of Philosophy of ScienceIn the 80s and early 90s, a group of influential philosophers, historians, and philosophers of science were concerned with the following themes: disunity and pluralism of scientific theory and practice the nature of scientific modeling (in its dizzying variety, including mathematical, diagrammatic, and classificatory models) post-positivistic and practice-based articulations of scientific knowledge and practice. The aim of this conference is to invite scholars to reflect on the nature, thematics, and influence of the “Stanford School” of philosophy of science.

This event is free and open to the public.
