Department of History and Philosophy of Science

Department of History and Philosophy of Science

The History and Philosophy of Science is an academic field at the cutting edge of contemporary research pursued at major universities around the world. Drawing on different disciplines, it examines the philosophical and historical approaches to science in general, as well as to each of the particular research fields, including the humanities and social sciences, natural sciences, psychology and cognitive sciences, life and medical sciences, mathematics and logic, and the variety of new  technologies. Our faculty members include some of the world experts in their field, while several of our professors lead or collaborate in international research projects. We study science as a complex historical, social and cultural phenomenon, and we probe and highlight the conceptual dimensions of scientific practice.


The Department's Curriculum includes a broad range of courses, including Philosophy, History, Cognitive Science, History and Theory of Art, History and Philosophy of Technology, Science-Technology Studies, Museum Studies, et al. Our students  acquire a rich philosophical and historical education, which forms the core of systematic knowledge in the humanities, the natural sciences, social sciences, mathematics, technology, and the life and cognitive sciences. Graduates of the Department may pursue advanced research in national and international academic institutions, while they can be employed in any post that requires breadth of knowledge and interdisciplinarity, requires creativity, critical thinking, communication skills, and  problem-solving abilities.
