Begrebsdannelse i STS - en case

På en af sessionerne i det (her) tidligere omtalte årsmøde i Dansk Selskab for Filosofi (fredag d. 5. og lørdag d. 6. marts 2010 på Danmarks Pædagogiske Universitetsskole, Tuborgvej 164, Festsalen, bygning A, 2400 København NV) diskuteres et eksempel på begrebsdannelse i videnskabsstudier:

Saterday, March 6, 2010, at 13.15 - 14:45, in Sal 407:
The Philosophy of Science Studies:
A Case Study in Theorizing
Philosophy of science has traditionally been keen at investigating forms of inference, theory structure and theory choice, scientific explanation, modeling, and realism. As a discipline it is not often self-reflexive about the fact that it employs its own high-level, "meta-scientific" theories, models, and concepts. In contrast, science studies, which focuses on practice and norms in science, as well as ethnographic, sociological, and historical investigations of actual scientific work, seems to be more self-reflexive. In this session, we bring together a science studies scholar and a philosopher of science to exchange perspectives upon how we, as meta-scientists, could see our own theorizing, modeling, and conceptualization.

Workshop program:
13:15 - 13:20: Claus Emmeche: Workshop introduction.
13:20 - 13:35: Mercy W. Kamara: The Typology of the Game that American, British, and Danish crop and plant scientists play.
Discussion 13:35
13:50-14:05: Rasmus G. Winther: Abstraction and Conceptualization in/of Science.
Discussion 14:05
14:20 - 14:45: Panel and Plenum discussion: How to make models in science studies.
