Models and Empirical Philosophy: A Session in Honor of Patrick Suppes
8 August 11:00AM – 12:00PM

This session pays homage to the memory of Patrick Suppes (March 17, 1922 - November 17, 2014) who made substantial contributions not only to logic and philosophy of science, but to many other fields including physics, psychology, the social sciences, linguistics, probability and statistics. Thanks to his dual militancy as philosopher and applied scientist working in meteorology, learning theory and neuroscience, Suppes forged a novel way of doing philosophy of science that combines sophisticated formalism and careful attention to the details characterizing research within specific disciplines. A pioneer of the semantic view of theories, Suppes embraced a model-centred approach which is a unique blend of empiricism and pragmatism, revolving around the idea that scientific knowledge has an irreducibly tentative and local character, and is to be analysed from a genuinely pluralistic perspective. 

The Session Starts at 11:00am (due to the cancellation of Colleen Crangle's presentation)
