Philosophical Perspectives on Sciences. International Conference

Philosophical Perspectives on Sciences. International Conference: Hypothesis in science. On the 550th anniversary of the birth of Nicolaus Copernicus

19-21 October 2022, Toruń, Poland

Our conference aims to address the role of hypothetical thinking in the formulation and development of scientific theories and models.

Next year will mark the 550th anniversary of the birth of Nicolaus Copernicus. We think that it would be highly pertinent to discuss how our understanding of the role of hypotheses has changed since his time. Is the use of hypotheses still viable in current science, or has it been superseded by other scientific concepts or methods? The aim of our conference is to contribute to the dialogue between scientists, historians of science, philosophers of science, and logicians interested in scientific methods of reasoning.

Deadline of submission: May 31, 2022

Z żalem zawiadamiamy o śmierci profesora Dona Pigozziego. W 1970 obronił on pod kierunkiem Alfreda Tarskiego pracę doktorską dotyczącą algebr cylindrycznych. Przez większość życia związany był z Instytutem Matematyki Iowa State University. Był jedną z najważniejszych postaci dla logiki algebraicznej; wraz z W. Blokiem napisał podstawowe dla tej dziedziny refleksji dzieło, 'Algebraizable logics’ (1989). Uzyskał wiele rezultatów ważnych dla badaczy z rozmaitych dziedzin logiki i informatyki.
