This event is the continuation of the International Society for the Philosophy of Chemistry - Summer symposium 2010, organised in Oxford at the University College during August 9-11, 2010.

 

The International Society for the Philosophy of Chemistry (ISPC) is devoted to the international exchange of ideas concerning the philosophical foundations of the chemical sciences and related areas. This exchange fosters discourse between chemists, biochemists, philosophers, historians, sociologists and educators.

Philosophy of chemistry concerns both internal questions arising from the methods, concepts, and ontology unique to chemistry and chemical research as well as traditional questions in the philosophy of science, addressed from a chemical perspective. Although philosophy of chemistry is a reflecting discipline in the first place, it is also considered to contribute constructively to the image of chemistry in science, education, and society.


Topic: conferences, celebrating chemistry, networking, seminars, workshops Audience: post graduate students, professional chemists, research scientists, universities, women chemists

Professor José Antonio Chamizo (Mexico) will attend the meeting and there will be a special activity to present his most recent book "Historia y filosofía de la química: aportes para la enseñanza". One of the authors of the book, Professor Olimipa Lombardi (Argentina), will also attend the meeting. So, the symposium is a big opportunity to interact with the editor of the book and with one of its authors.
