== Topic:
This workshop aims to address traditional topics in the (feminist) philosophy of science, such as impartiality and objectivity in science, the value-free ideal, and debate around inductive risk and the role of non-epistemic values in scientific reasoning. We are especially interested in thinking about how one decides which non-epistemic values should play a role in scientific reasoning (if any), and attempts to make precise exactly what role they should play. Within the feminist epistemology, we want to, furthermore, focus on the concepts of situated epistemology and standpoint theory, as a means of exploring how employing the values of marginalised groups in the scientific process can support the claims put forward by these epistemological positions. We wish to supplement these theoretical considerations by various case studies from any branch of science (broadly construed), whereom employing non-epistemic values and especially feminist ones, leads to epistemic, as well as non-epistemic benefits within science, for affected and marginalised groups, as well as for society more generally.
This workshop aims to bring together philosophers of science, including feminist philosophers of science, as well as, more generally, people interested in feminist philosophy, not necessarily at the same time being engaged in philosophy of science.
