Workshop organized by
c:o/re, Aachen University & Dr. Andrei Mărășoiu
To understand the context-sensitive justificatory practices at work in scientific pursuits, an understanding of research cultures and the variation therein is necessary. In this light, this workshop addresses the interaction between logic and metaphysical models in scientific practices and social and cultural approaches to these practices.
In criticism of Western-centric or Eurocentric tendencies in the sociology and historiography of science, we aim to better evince the many varieties of knowledge by focusing on certain regional philosophical schools within the European continent. By exploring local pluralities of knowledge production, we aim to reflect on the usefulness or irrelevance of distinctions between Western, Central and Eastern European philosophy.
A currently important debate where knowledge systems may display their different metaphysical underpinnings revolves around articulating the idea of formal resources needed to lay the foundations of the scientific enterprise. By tackling such concerns, the workshop is poised to join historians, philosophers, and sociologists of science, representing distinct schools of thought, to reflect on epistemic practices and current trends in the philosophy and sociology of science.
The event will be hosted by the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Bucharest
