Epistemology of Science Workshop

This workshop will focus on the epistemic concepts that are central to scientific practice:
explanation, understanding, and knowledge. In particular, the focus will be on the social
structures, methods, and idealized representations used to accomplish these epistemic aims of
science. This workshop will bring together both junior and senior faculty from these disciplines
that are interested in these topics to discuss how these epistemic concepts are related and
what justifies us in accepting the epistemic products of science.
