We will be discussing a draft of ‘Perspectival Realism: The Perspectival Character of Perceptual Experience’ by Keith Wilson.
Every historian operates deliberately or unknowingly with a spatial and emotional context. However, spaces and emotions are elusive concepts that are difficult to distinguish. This seminar hopes to make these perspectives less obscure. By discussing the participants’ research projects in relation to these theories, theoretical questions will be considered such as: How can we study emotions and spaces in history? What is the relation between spaces and places, as well as emotions and affections? How do discourses on spaces and emotions change over time and how do these concepts interact with each other?

Nathaniel Comfort is Professor of the History of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University. He has written extensively about the history of human genetics and the relationships between attempts to understand human heredity and to “improve” humans. His online lecture will be followed by an online panel session. The event is organized in lieu of the corona-postponed 8th Norwegian Conference on the History of Science, and is a collaboration between the conference’s program committee, The Norwegian Museum of Science and Technology and the Science Studies Colloquium.

Prof. Barbara Osimani is Director of the Center for Philosophy, Science, and Policy and Associate Professor of Logic and Philosophy of Science at the Polytechnic University of the Marche, Italy. She has been recently heading an ERC project, which also ran at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, LMU: "Philosophy of Pharmacology: Safety, Statistical Standards, and Evidence Amalgamation" (GA StG 639276). She is an ordinary member of the Open Science Center at the LudwigMaximilians Universität, Munich, and Visiting Professor at the MCMP, LMU. Her current research interests are focused on philosophy of statistics and scientific inference in research contexts characterised by strategic behaviour. She is developing a "Formal Epistemology of Medicine", with the aim to analyse the complex interaction of methodological, social and regulatory as well as ethical dimensions in medicine. Her scientific interests include: the precautionary principle, evidence hierarchies, causality, and statistical inference in medicine. Her recent papers analyse issues around philosophy of evidence (reliability, bias, reproducibility, coherence) from a Bayesian perspective. Within her ERC Grant she developed a Bayesian framework for the integration of heterogenous items of evidence and higher order evidence for the purpose of causal assessment of drug-induced harm ("E-Synthesis"), in collaboration with Drug Agencies across Europe.

Det er klart for semesterets tredje lunsjseminar på idéhistorie. Vi får besøk av Sindre Bangstad, Forsker I, KIFO (Institutt for kirke, religion og livssynsforskning), Oslo.
Naïd Mubalegh is a PhD student in Philosophy of Science (Biology) at the University of Lisbon and the University Paris 1 Sorbonne, and currently a guest researcher at the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) at the University of Oslo. She investigates the relationship between economic theories and the development of evolutionary theory. She is interested, among others, in understanding how certain, often strictly defined, concepts of rationality have been transferred from economics to evolutionary biology. How has an utilitarian research method been so successful in describing and explaining evolutionary processes and biodiversity? What is left outside by such a perspective, and what happens when scientific models from biology influence economics in return?
We are pleased announce the first Philosophical seminar of the semester, inviting you to celebrate and learn more about Alejandra Mancilla´s research project Dynamic Territory (DynamiTe), for which she was recently awarded the prestigious ERC starting grant.
