This seminar aims to discuss the relationship between history and philosophy of science and the visual image. Almost all of us come across scientific images in our research; there is, however, no clear consensus of how best to incorporate visualisation into fields of studies. If we do not want to consider scientific images merely as illustrations of a text, how can we use appropriate methods and concepts in order to get results beyond the pure text? The group aims to face these challenges and deal with the methods, treatment and interpretation of scientific images, that will include images as a constitutional part of knowledge and evidence as well as images of the fine arts reflecting science. All welcome.

Meetings will take place in Seminar Room 1, Department of History and Philosophy of Science. Each presenter will choose a text to be prepared by the group for their topic. You will find these texts a week in advance in the group’s box in the Whipple Library. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact gdb32@cam.ac.uk
