The International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science (HOPOS) is an international
society of scholars with special interest in research on the history
of philosophy of science and related topics in the history of natural
and social sciences, logic, philosophy, and mathematics. This shared
interest includes all historical periods, geographical regions, and
diverse methodologies. The activities promote historical work in a
variety of ways, including the sponsorship of meetings and conference
sessions, the publication of books and special issues of journals,
maintaining an e-mail discussion group, and the dissemination of information
about libraries, archives and collections, and bibliographic information.
For further information, please go to www.umkc.edu/scistud/hopos .
The Société de philosophie des sciences (SPS) was founded in Paris
in 2003, following broad consultations among French-speaking philosophers
of science and logicians. Its purpose is to promote philosophy of
science. While its geographic and linguistic anchoring is French,
it aims at an international constituency, hoping to attract colleagues
from everywhere. The focal discipline is philosophy of science, with
a privileged connection to other areas in philosophy, but historical
and other approaches of science are taken in, and the contribution
of the sciences themselves is deemed essential. Finally, although
academic research constitutes the core of its activities, the Society
hopes to attract professionals from other areas, such as secondary
school teachers, journalists and other media specialists, science
museum personnel, industrial researchers and engineers, and workers
in the medical and legal professions. For further information, please
