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. Five successful conferences have been held so far, in Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, Bloomington, Athens, Vienna, and Edinburgh. The 7th conference will be held in early July 2018 in northern Europe, after the SPSP and before the HOPOS conferences: the exact dates and location will be announced very soon, and the call for papers released at the same time.

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

Our last conference, &HPS7, on the theme of "The Evolution of Knowledge" was held in Hannover on 5-7 July 2018; this event was co-sponsored by the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science.

Our next conference, &HPS8, will be at Virginia Tech in 2020. Look out for further announcements!
