A couple of years ago when we started this blog we claimed that ‘the philosophy of science is entering an exciting era’. This is reflected in the submissions we’ve received at the BJPS which have covered a huge range of topics, from the hole argument in general relativity to the science of well-being, and from the status of climate change modelling to the nature of delusions in schizophrenia. This sense of excitement will hopefully extend to our up-coming series of blog posts, which will spotlight the new projects of philosophers of science. We will begin with Steven John (Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge) who will be discussing his and Anna Alexandrova’s ‘Limits of the Numerical’ project. And these will cover an equally broad range of topics in the philosophy of science, from general issues to the more particular. We hope you will enjoy them, pass them on, tweet about them (!) and carry the conversation forward.
And, of course, if you are a philosopher of science and would like to tell your peers about your new project, send your idea to email@example.com.
