The Research Program “Philosophy and History of Science” focuses on two of the different perspectives of so-called meta-scientific studies of science or science studies, with the intention of contributing to their better knowledge, namely: philosophy of science, history of science, and their interrelationships. With its various research lines and projects, the program’s activities deploy in the fields of general philosophy of science, general science history and historiography of science (analyzing the common aspects of science, making abstraction of the particularities and specificities of the various disciplines), the diverse special philosophies of science (when addressing specific philosophical problems of particular sciences) and special stories of science (in which cases or particular episodes in the history of science are discussed in detail), as well as the interface that is conformed by the philosophy of science and the history of science in diacronic philosophy (or historical) of science and technology or historical epistemology of science, and philosophical history of science.
