The Hi-Phi International Conference aims at fostering the debate between the History of Science and the Philosophy of Science communities by integrating not only independent studies of both disciplines, but also those that stand at the interface of History and Philosophy of Science.

The idea for this conference stems from the joint forces of the two research units – the Centre for Philosophy of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (CFCUL) and the Interuniversity Centre for the History of Science and Technology (CIUHCT) – in partnership with the Department of History and Philosophy of Science of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (Ciências ULisboa). This conference will be held in Lisbon on June 23-24, 2022.

The goal of this meeting is to relink different communities and facilitate the dialogue between senior and junior researchers, but also between historians and philosophers that often work apart. Therefore, the dialogue between History and Philosophy of Science will be promoted by gathering in the same session presentations focused on the same topic, but from the perspective of each of the disciplines, in order to establish scientific bridges and foster community building of historians and philosophers of science.

The conference will be organized following six main axes, namely:

History and Philosophy of Life Sciences

History and Philosophy of Environment

History and Philosophy of Logic and Mathematics

History and Philosophy of Physics

History and Philosophy of Technology

Science and Art

Science and Ethics.
