GFC is a research group at the Facultad de Filosofía y Letras and at the Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales (University of Buenos Aires) devoted to the interdisciplinary research in philosophy and foundations of sciences, particularly, of physics, chemistry and biology.

 

  Welcome

GFC focuses on the philosophy of special sciences, approaching issues at the foundations of the different disciplines. Currently, the group gathers members with varied backgrounds, and many of them are trained both in science and philosophy. The group has been headed for several years by Dr. Olimpia Lombardi. There are three main areas of research: philosophy of physics, philosophy of chemistry, and philosophy of biology.

Identity in science and philosophy

We announce that the Workshop Identity in science and philosophy will be held from July 29 to 30, 2019 at Paris Diderot University, Paris, France.

We organize this inaugural meeting, continuing a tradition of fluid exchange between the University of Buenos Aires and the Paris Diderot University. The idea is to bring professionals from the area together in a space conducive to discussion and exchange of opinions. We look forward to your attendance. Because the space where the event will be held is small, we invite you to register by sending an email to:

workshop.paris.2019@gmail.com


Information about the event will be updated on the website:

We remember Dr. Mario Castagnino

With great regret our group reports the sad news of the death of Dr. Mario Castagnino. Mario was an exceptional scientist, we were fortunate to have him as director, partner and friend in our group for many years. For many of us he has been a great teacher but above all a great person, irreplaceable, that we will miss for a long time...
