CFP: Conference on the Philosophy of the Social Sciences 2011

Conference on the Philosophy of the Social Sciences 2011 (August 25 & 26 2011 – University of Copenhagen)

The philosophy of the social sciences is concerned with the multifarious philosophical issues raised by the social sciences. This conference highlights two questions addressed within the philosophy of the social sciences. One is the societal role of the social sciences. The other is the issue of methodological individualism versus methodological holism. There will be two keynote talks on each topic. The conference invites contributions within these two areas as well as within other areas of the philosophy of the social sciences. Moreover, it invites contributions from philosophers of social science and social scientists alike.

Please send a one-page abstract to one of the organizers by Monday, January 31 2011. Notification by mid-February 2011
