Chair of Philosophy and History of Science

Neu Lehrstuhl Infografik

Philosophy of science systematically analyses the premises of knowledge, methods, purposes and results of individual scientific disciplines as well as science in general. History of science studies the genesis and development of scientific knowledge and its related techniques in their respective institutional contexts as well as in its broader social context.

The Chair of Philosophy and History of Science pursues an integrative concept regarding both areas: Philosophy of Science provides History of Science with systematic key questions; on the other hand, History of Science serves as a laboratory without which a comprehensive Philosophy of Science could hardly exist: „Philosophy of science without history of science is empty; history of science without philosophy of science is blind.” (Imre Lakatos)

Within this framework, research projects on the current philosophy of science are just as important as historical studies, especially in conjunction with the history of modern philosophy.
