14-16 April 2010, Sydney-Tilburg Conference on "The Future of Philosophy of Science", Tilburg, The Netherlands

Date: 14-16 April 2010
Location: Tilburg, The Netherlands
Deadline: 15 November 2009

Philosophy of science deals with the foundations and the methods of science. While the scope of philosophy of science is rather uncontroversial, there is considerable disagreement about its methodology. A look into the relevant journals reveals that there is a plurality of approaches. In spite of this, there also seem to be undeniable trends in our discipline, such as the increasing specialization, and the increasing co-operation with empirical scientists. This conference will explore the future of philosophy of science. In particular, we are interested in how the different methods philosophers of science use relate to each other, whether they can fruitfully complement each other, and whether current trends allow predictions about the development of our field.
