SFB 1288-Konferenz — Vergleichen – interdisziplinär
20 Mar 2019 - 22 Mar 2019 • Bielefeld, Germany
Abstract:
Inwieweit handelt es sich beim Vergleichen um eine Praxis, die auch von anderen, insbesondere empirisch arbeitenden Wissenschaften untersucht wird? Bei der interdisziplinären Tagung des SFB 1288 wird nach den kognitiven, biologischen und anthropologischen Grundlagen des Vergleichens gefragt.

Kann die Evolutionsbiologie darüber Auskunft geben, ob das Vergleichen eine spezifisch anthropologische – oder aber eine biologisch begründete – Tätigkeit darstellt? Gibt es individuelle Unterschiede des Verhaltens bei Tieren, die mit der Fähigkeit des Vergleichens, des Umgangs mit Unterschieden und Ähnlichkeiten, in Verbindung gebracht werden können? Ist das Vergleichen eine biologisch-anthropologische Fähigkeit, die auf genetische und evolutionsbiologische Entstehungszusammenhänge schließen lässt? Welche Ergebnisse kann die Psychologie vorlegen, wenn sie die Praxis des Vergleichens in experimentelle Settings einbezieht? Bei der Tagung geht es auch um wissenschaftshistorische Fragen: Auf welcher Grundlage verbinden und trennen sich etwa die vergleichenden Wissenschaften im frühen 18. Jahrhundert?

Topics:
Vergleichen, Praktiken, Psychologie, Geschichte, Verhalten, Anthropologie

Identity in science and philosophy
29 Jul 2019 - 30 Jul 2019 • Paris, France
Abstract:
We announce that the Workshop Identity in science and philosophy will be held from July 29 to 30, 2019 at Paris Diderot University, Paris, France. We organize this inaugural meeting, continuing a tradition of fluid exchange between the University of Buenos Aires and the Paris Diderot University. The idea is to bring professionals from the area (philosophers and scientists) together in a space conducive to discussion and exchange of opinions. The thematic axis is “Identity in science and philosophy”, proposals for talks that are not on the central topic but are linked to the philosophy of science, foundations of physics, foundations of chemistry, etc, will be welcome.

CLMPST XVI — 16th Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology
05 Aug 2019 - 16 Sep 2019 • Prague, Czech Republic
Abstract:
The 16th Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology (CLMPST) will take place in Prague, August 5-10, 2019, organised under the auspices of the Division for Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology of the International Union for History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (DLMPST/IUHPST) by the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences. The congress has a long history and a unique character, bringing together the communities of logicians, philosophers of logic and philosophers and historians of science and technology. The theme of the 16th edition of the congress is "Bridging across academic cultures". We believe that the communities and societies in both logic and philosophy/history of science are often fragmented and isolated from each other. We want to contribute to redressing this state of things.

Klausurwoche: „Bioökonomie und moderne Biotechnologien: Ethische, rechtliche und soziale Aspekte“
23 Sep 2019 - 27 Sep 2019 • Bonn, Germany
Abstract:
Die Klausurwoche gibt exzellenten Nachwuchswissenschaftler/innen aus unterschiedlichen Disziplinen die Gelegenheit, eigene Arbeiten und Forschungsvorhaben in den folgenden bioökonomischen Themenbereichen zu präsentieren und intensiv zu diskutieren: Philosophie und Ethik, Landwirtschaft und Ernährung, Natur und Umwelt, Energie und Rohstoffe, Marktmechanismen und Technologietransfer, Recht und Regulierung.

Dabei sollen ethische, rechtliche und soziale Aspekte der Verfahren und Ziele der Bioökonomie ebenso diskutiert werden wie ihre ökologischen und wirtschaftlichen Dimensionen. Für praktische Einblicke sind Exkursionen (u. a. zum FZJ) geplant. Es wird zudem ein Ländervergleich mit den Niederlanden angestrebt, da sowohl mit Blick auf die ökonomische Ausrichtung beider Länder als auch hinsichtlich ihrer normativen Debatten unterschiedliche Schwerpunktsetzungen bestehen. Ergänzt werden die Beiträge der Teilnehmer/innen durch Fachvorträge von ausgewiesenen Expertinnen und Experten.

Interessierte Nachwuchswissenschaftler/innen sind eingeladen, sich mit einem Abstract (400–600 Wörter) und einem kurzen akademischen Lebenslauf bis zum 01.05.2019 unter biooekonomie@drze.de zu bewerben. Die Konferenzsprache ist deutsch; Abstracts und Vorträge werden aber auch in englischer Sprache entgegengenommen. Alle Beiträge zur Klausurwoche werden in einem Tagungsband publiziert, der auch gemeinsam entwickelte Handlungsempfehlungen enthalten soll.
