Philosophy of Science in Missouri

Recently there have been some valuable inititiatives in the philosophy of science in MO.

Three philosophers at U of MO – Columbia (Andre Ariew, Andrew Melnik, and Philip Robbins) have organized the first Missouri Philosophy of Science Workshop, which will take place next weekend in Columbia.

And some philosophers in St. Louis (including Carl Craver (whose idea it was), Kent Staley, and myself) are forming the St. Louis Area Philosophy of Science Association, which will have its own first conference on February 28, 2009.
