Philosophy of Science Resources


Canadian Society for the History and Philosophy of Science

http://www.yorku.ca/cshps1/

The main professional organization for the history and philosophy of science in Canada.
There is not much here of direct use to students in PHIL 251, I admit, but some students may be curious about how the philosophy of science is organized as an academic sub-discipline. Also includes a fairly useful links section.


The Philosophy of Science Association

http://philosophy.wisc.edu/PSA/

Publishes the journal Philosophy of Science (U of S Library link)


Society for the Social Studies of Science
http://www.4sonline.org/

Probably the most prominent organization in the emerging field of interdisciplinary science and technology studies (represented in our course by, e.g., Barnes and Bloor, Latour). Publishes the journal Science, Technology and Human Values
(U of S Library link).

The Philosophers Index
WebSPIRS via U of S Library (access restricted to U of S users)

The best single resource for finding journal articles in philosophy. Listings relevant to the philosophy of science can be found throughout and articles from the main journals in the field are included back to 1940.

Writing in Philosophy
Department of Philosophy, University of Toronto

I draw your attention in particular to Geoffery Payzant's What Does He Want?. It may have been written before you were born, but more things than you might imagine haven't really changed since 1979.
