History and Philosophy of Science

History and Philosophy

Editors: Paolo Palmieri
ISSN: 2376-6336

This series invites book proposals that include innovative strategies for pursuing history and philosophy of science.
Especially welcome are scholarly works using non-analytic philosophical perspectives to successfully bring to bear
on our understanding of how scientific practices are related to the humanities and the social sciences.
The series also welcomes exploration of the sciences in relation to gender, culture, society,
and the intellectual and social contexts that illuminate the places, the structures of origination,
and the patterns of development over generations.
Approaches may include focused analyses of thinkers from unorthodox perspectives that can shed new light on the history and philosophy of science,
such as Montaigne, Bruno, Galileo, Newton, Pascal, Emerson, Thoreau, Nietzsche, Jung, Freud. Proposals aimed at probing the philosophical intersections
between the sciences and other societal practices that can be configured as heretic are also encouraged. These might include the emergence
of the psychoanalytic movements in the twentieth century, how the fine arts have impinged on the historical processes that gave rise to the
sciences over the last few centuries, how in turn the intellectual frameworks inaugurated by the sciences have been imported into the avant-garde
movements that paralleled the advent of industrialized societies, and finally how contemporary scientific domains of knowledge reverberate in ’deviant’
social and artistic practices.
