We live and develop in a “knowledge society” in which historical and philosophical considerations of science are necessary to understand the present day. As a result of this need, the department is renewing and reinforcing course offerings and research in the history and philosophy of science, promoting a diverse and interdisciplinary perspective with the goal of creating, over time, a community recognized in national and international spheres.
The program possesses the following aspects:

The courses bridge between continuity and innovation, combining subjects and expertise both already present in the curricula and to be enacted in the near future.

  • Undergraduate: philosophy of science, logic, logic of mathematics, history of science, historical epistemology.
  • Postgraduate: philosophy of social science; political epistemology; Renaissance natural philosophy, alchemy, astrology, and magic; history of the scientific revolution.
  • Related courses: bioethics, social ethics and bioethics, history of logic.

The program includes two recent interdisciplinary and international ERC projects [IT]:

  • Knowledge for Use
  • Early Modern Cosmology

Public activities
The program plans to promote a series of activities not only to solidify international exchange and to create occasions for intellectual exchange but also to share – at a level accessible to the wider public – results and findings derived from the research carried out within the program (“Colloquia”, national and international guests, “International Network”).
