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.
