Research Group on History and Philosophy of Science and Science Studies
Head of on History and Philosophy of Science and Science Studies: Professor (wsr) Henrik Kragh Sørensen.
The Research Group on History and Philosophy of Science and Science Studies encompasses the history and philosophy of the sciences broadly conceived while focused on integrative approaches to history and philosophy of science and on philosophy of science in practice. It holds special expertise in the philosophy of the life sciences, the history and philosophy of mathematics, the philosophy of interdisciplinarity. Research in the group is also directed at other areas of history and philosophy of science that are of special importance to practicing scientists, science policy, and science education.
Among the topics of current research are biosemiotics, philosophy of mathematical practice, history and philosophy of computer science, and history and philosophy of responsible conduct of research.
The Research Group for History and Philosophy of Science and Science Studies manages the Danish Research Network for Philosophy of Science (funded by the Danish Research Council for the Humanities from 2011 to 2015). Researchers and educators in philosophy of science can sign up for the network’s listserv and join the network’s groups on Facebook or LinkedIn.
