History and Philosophy of the Social Sciences Symposium

Date & Time

Sep 29, 2016, 2:00-5:30 pm EDT

The symposium will examine the history and philosophy of the social sciences, bringing together lines of inquiry that often exist separately. Symposium participants will include philosophers, historians, and sociologists. What is shared by the disciplines and methods represented in the symposium is a turn inward, to treat intellectuals, disciplines, institutions, and systems of ideas in the social sciences as objects of research in themselves.
