The Rotman Institute of Philosophy at Western University brings together philosophers and scientists to examine some of the most complex issues and most engrossing problems emerging from contemporary science.
Members of the Rotman Institute include scholars who work on history and the philosophy of science, research ethics, bioethics, science and values, and feminist approaches to science. We come together in a unique collaborative workspace to engage, explore and exchange ideas. This “philosophy laboratory” is the heart of the Rotman Institute. The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is jointly funded through donations by the Rotman Family Foundation, and funds from Western University. Additional funding has been granted from other organizations, listed below. This funding is integral to the ongoing work of the Institute, and very appreciated.
