HPS Reading Group, Session II (Do-Over)

6


(This is a do-over for last week's event, which was postponed to this week.)

Thanks to everyone who came out to the first session. I thought it went very well! Those who weren't able to make it the first time should feel free to come to the second.

We will begin with some quick introductions, including background and expectations/hopes for the group. The reading for the second session will be "Reductionism and its heuristics: Making methodological reductionism honest" by William C. Wimsatt.

Here is a Dropbox link to the paper: https://www.dropbox.com/s/f4zh0cwegulzxh4/Wimsatt%20-%20Reudctionism%20and%20its%20heuristics.pdf?dl=0
