New Directions in Philosophy of Science
Janet Kourany
University of Notre Dame
12:05 pm, 817R Cathedral of Learning

Abstract: For years now feminists have been reflecting on science in ways that should grab the attention of philosophers of science, but have thus far failed to do so. These ways of reflecting on science raise important questions regarding the social responsibility of science, questions that provide philosophers of science with a richer, more socially valuable program of research than the programs pursued at present. I shall sketch out some of the main differences between this new program for philosophy of science and the programs pursued at present. I shall also sketch out some of the ways the superiority of the new program can be defended.
