DFG-FWF Research Unit “The Epistemology of the LHC”

Last Friday and Saturday, September 23 and 24, our Department and its FWF project “Producing novelty and securing credibility: LHC experiments from the perspective of Social Studies of Science” hosted a meeting of the interdisciplinary DFG-FWF Research Unit “The Epistemology of the LHC”. Physicists, philosophers, and historians of physics from the University of Wuppertal, University of Bonn, TU Berlin, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, and RWTH Aachen joined the WIHO project team at the University of Klagenfurt to discuss work in progress and report on the recent activities of the six Research Unit projects. The meeting started with an inspiring visit to the Karl Popper Archives at the Klagenfurt University Library.
