Science's Voice of Reflection

Gerhard Heinzmann and Benedikt Loewe, eds

By virtue of its subject, its methods, and its
disciplinary tradition, philosophy of science straddles
the borderlines between C. P. Snow’s Two Cultures,
connected equally strongly to the learned realm of
the humanities and the technological domain of the
sciences and thereby linking these worlds.
Philosophers of science who engage with scientists
or engineers often understand their role as that
of the voice of refl ection: the philosophical eagle
perspective allows them to engage with those
questions all too often ignored in the everyday
routine of scientifi c practice: questions about the
motivation, norms, values, methods, and limitations
of the scientifi c enterprise.
Many modern scientifi c projects covering all of the
disciplines in the natural, medical and engineering
sciences urgently require this level of philosophical
refl ection: large-scale collaborative scientifi c projects
with major impact on our world and society raise
concerns about sustainability, safety, objectivity,
inter-subjectivity, ethics, and the fundamental
concepts underlying the scientifi c questions, all of
which are fi rmly within the domain of competence of
the philosopher of science.
This is the inaugural volume of the new book series
Comptes Rendus de l’Académie Internationale de
Philosophie des Science whose volumes are freely
available online. The series is edited on behalf of the
Académie Internationale de Philosophie des Sciences
(AIPS) and this volume contains papers presented
at the AIPS conference held in Amsterdam in
September 2018.
