Research Unit for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology


HPST is devoted to the study of the history and current development of the sciences, technology and medicine. The disciplinary focus of the group is the history of science, history of ideas, STS and philosophy and sociology of science. The purpose of the unit is to firmly anchor this field of research and teaching at the department for philosophy and the history of ideas. The working language of the group is English and we welcome all colleagues with an interest in this field of research.

-          Research presentations by invited speakers

-          Work-in-Progress sessions and brown bag seminars based on the research of group members.
