In the philosophy of science, concepts have traditionally been treated from the perspective of the rationality of conceptual change. Recently, however, there has been a surge of interest in the issue of how concepts themselves function in the research that gives rise to new scientific insights.
The workshop seeks to bring together scholars interested in the role of concepts in investigative practice in order to identify some key questions and issues, and to map out some directions for current and future research. We have asked participants to prepare a brief statement (10-15 minutes) in which they outline their own research interest, preferably by relating it to a scientific example.
