Description:
The Limits of Science is a workshop which aims to explore this general
theme from the perspectives of metaphysicians, general philosophers of
science, philosophers of biology and philosophers of physics. Topics to
be discussed will include the scope of scientific explanations, the
reductionism-emergentism debate, and the extent to which metaphysical
considerations, e.g. regarding concepts like time and causality, may
condition our thinking about the nature of the universe.

Speakers:
Rani Anjum (Aas), María Cerezo (Murcia), Mauro Dorato (Rome), Claus
Emmeche (Copenhagen), Jan Faye (Copenhagen), M. J. García-Encinas
(Granada), Anna-Sofia Maurin (Gothenburg), Alvaro Moreno (San
Sebastian), Stephen Mumford (Nottingham), Henk de Regt (Amsterdam),
Svend E. Rugh (Copenhagen) and Henrik Zinkernagel (Granada).
