Report

The GWP organizes a conference every 3 years where all fields of philosophy of science are represented. The GWP conferences are mainly intended to strengthen the connection among German philosophers of science as well as their connection to the international philosophy of science community. The inaugural conference of the GWP was held in 2013 at the University of Hanover. The second international conference of the German Society for Philosophy of Science (GWP.2016) took place at the campus of the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf from March 8 to 11, 2016. It was hosted by the Düsseldorf Center for Logic and Philosophy of Science (DCLPS). One additional aim of this year’s conference was to bring together philosophers of science working in philosophy of the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities. This was also the main reason for the conference’s title: “Philosophy of Science Between the Natural Sciences, the Social Sciences, and the Humanities”.
