The Belgian Society for Logic and Philosophy of Science and the Belgian
National Committee on Logic, History and Philosophy of Science present
Third Young Researchers Days in Logic, Philosophy and History of Science
Brussels, Royal Academy, September 3-4, 2012
The theme of this year’s meeting is the fiftieth anniversary of Thomas
Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, which included an epoch
making theory on scientific methodology, the organization of the
scientific community and the historical development of science. At this
occasion, and in a time when a renewed interest in overlapping themes
between history and philosophy of science has emerged, we invite
participants to explore the many ways in which history, philosophy and
logic can find fruitful ways to collaborate towards a better
understanding of modern science, without however excluding other
This workshop is an opportunity for young researchers (PhD students,
young postdocs) working in the cited fields to present their work to a
larger community, and for all researchers in these fields to meet and
reinforce scientific and personal links.
Confirmed plenary speakers: Karine Chemla (Paris), Jouni-Matti Kuukkanen
(Leiden), Thomas Nickles (Nevada), Josep Simon (Paris).
