MetaScience Kick-off Workshop

Engineers House, Clifton Down, Avon, BS8 3NB

The Metaphysical Unity of Science (MetaScience) ERC consolidator project at the University of Bristol pursues the question of what, if anything, unifies the natural sciences. It studies the question from the perspective of metaphysics and philosophy of science by way of employing case studies from biology, chemistry, and physics.

The MetaScience Kick-off Workshop will introduce the project team and feature talks by the project’s Advisory Board on the project’s theme. It will focus on the question "What, if anything, unifies the natural sciences?". Registration is completely free and all registered participants will be fully catered for.
