Welcome to the HPS Reading Group!

The HPS reading group serves as a weekly meeting place for graduate students, faculty, and friends of the program. Typically, conversations revolve around a book or set of articles central to, or on the cutting-edge of, the history and/or philosophy of science. 


The reading groups fosters dialogue between historians and philosophers of science in an informal, friendly, and open manner, continuing our tradition of promoting philosophically engaged history of science and historically rich philosophy of science.

At any time, if you want to join our community, take part in the discussions, or simply find out more, please feel free to send an email to HPS director Robert Goulding at Robert.D.Goulding.2@nd.edu. We also continue our discussions in our google group (see below).
