Committee for Integrated HPS

We are an international group of scholars dedicated to the integration of the history of science and the philosophy of science. 

The Committee for Integrated HPS was established in 2006. Our main activity so far has been the biennial conference series "&HPS" on integrated History and Philosophy of Science. Seven successful conferences have been held so far, in Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, Bloomington, Athens, Vienna, Edinburgh, and Hannover.

Our next conference, &HPS8, will be at Virginia Tech on 15-17 July 2020, on the theme of "From Unification to Pluralism," The deadline for abstracts has been extended to 31 December 2019. Please see the call for papers here.

Building on the success of the &HPS conferences, we are currently considering other possible activities.

We note with great sadness the recent death of Professor Jean Gayon, who was a key member of our Committee and a great inspiration to numerous scholars and students of history and philosophy of science worldwide. A tribute to his life and work, by Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent, can be found here.
