Chers collègues,

La date limite pour la soumission de contributions pour cette conférence a été reportée au 5 juillet 2012.

Nous nous permettons de souligner que:

- les soumissions venant d'auteurs francophones sont plus que le bienvenu, même si la langue de la conférence est l'anglais ;


- cette conférence, même si elle est organisée par des philosophes et des épistémologues, est ouverte à des contributions venant d'autres champs disciplinaires comme les sciences de la cognition, les sciences formelles, la sociologie, l'histoire ou le droit. Parmi les conférenciers invités, Rebecca Kukla travaille par exemple sur la notion d'auteur collectif (
collective authorship) ; les travaux de Brad Wray s'appuient de façon significative sur les études faites en scientométrie et en sociologie ; quant à Christian List, il est le co-auteur avec Philip Pettit d'un livre sur l'action collective qui touche aussi les sciences politiques.

Merci de nous aider à diffuser cette information au sein des communautés correspondantes.


Bien cordialement,

Cyrille Imbert et Thomas Boyer



Conference annoucement and call for abstracts


Call for Abstracts: Epistemic groups and collaborative research in science

Nancy, France, 17-19 December 2012

 

A large part of scientific research is now done in a collaborative way or within groups, from small local collaborations to international teams. More generally, many epistemic activities need to be analyzed in the context of the group or community in which they take place. The conference is devoted to a philosophical analysis of collaborative research and of group epistemic life in general.

It is open to various approaches, in particular philosophical and epistemological ones. Case-studies as well as formal studies are welcome, insofar as they serve a philosophical thesis.

 

Invited speakers

Denis Bonnay (University Paris Ouest Nanterre, France)

Rebecca Kukla (Georgetown University, Washington, DC, USA)

All inquiries should be sent to thomas.boyer AT univ-lorraine.fr

 

Questions of interest include but are not limited to:

- What types of collaborative work should be distinguished, and why? What types of epistemic groups should be distinguished, and why?

- What are (or should be) propositional attitudes in (epistemic, scientific) groups, and how are epistemic decisions taken?

- What kinds of epistemic commitments are required in collaboration and group activity?

- To what extent does collaborative research and the activity of epistemic groups require collective/common/distributed knowledge?

- How does opinion dynamics works in scientific and non-scientific communities?

- Why do scientists collaborate and in which circumstances should they?

- Are the scientific practices of groups different from those of individual scientists?

- How do scientific groups interact, if they do?

- Do groups work similarly in various fields of science? Do theoretical and experimental groups work in the same way?

- To what extent is the epistemic activity of scientific groups different from the epistemic activity of other groups?
