Conference Theme:

Pragmatism, with its focus on the human dimension of inquiry, offers a compelling lens through which to explore the nature, scope, and limits of scientific knowledge. This workshop will, building on recent work, explore topics at the intersection of pragmatism and philosophy of science, examining how pragmatism sheds light on scientific practice, success, and the interplay between metaphysics and epistemology. By bringing together leading philosophers with a shared interest in pragmatism across diverse disciplinary backgrounds, we aim to foster the ongoing development of this promising area of inquiry.
