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.
