We would like to invite you to contribute to and participate in the upcoming sessions of the Journal Club on History and Philosophy of Science. Hosted by the CIUHCT, it is to take place once a month during lunchtime 12.30-13.30 on Fridays (April 20th, May 18th, June 15th, July 13th). Participants are welcome to have lunch during the meeting. The schedule can be adjusted according to the participants.

The Journal Club offers an informal meeting arena to foster scientific discussion and promote critical thinking. The current sessions will address the topic of "Bringing disciplines (and people) closer: research methodologies in History and Philosophy of Science”. Meetings will be held in English.

Everyone (from all areas of research) is welcome to attend and suggest papers to discuss. 
Please send the article you would like to discuss to Ana Nunes (amqnunes@fc.ul.pt) and we will get back to you.

For the opening session we propose to examine and reflect upon the paper:

Thomas Nickles, "Philosophy of Science and History of Science”, Osiris, vol. 10, no. 1,  1995, p. 138-163. (This download is restricted by user and password; request it if you intend to participate)
