Medicine and the Philosophy of Science

Ponente: Federica Russo (University of Amsterdam-Philosophy Department)

Fecha: 13 de abril, 12 hrs
Lugar: Sala de Investigadores Fernando Salmerón, Instituto de Investigaciones Filosóficas, UNAM.

Resumen: In the last decade or so philosophers of science started paying attention to medicine, broadly construed. Before, medicine was primarily in the target of ethicists or anthropologists, but not so much philosophers of science. Conversely, philosophy of science was - before - occupied with questions arising in the natural sciences and, to a lesser extent, to the social sciences. In this talk I offer an overview of the main questions occupying the debate and I explain why this turn in philosophy of science is noteworthy.
