Before the Colloquium was named The Israel Colloquium for the History, Philosophy and Sociology of Science and it was founded in collaboration with R.S. Cohen and M. Wartofsky of the Boston Colloquium for the Philosophy of Science, in 1981.
The Colloquium now in its 39th year, is a cooperative partnership between Tel Aviv University’s Cohn Institute, the Hebrew University’s Edelstein Center, the Yehoshua Bar-Hillel Fund, and the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute. The Colloquium meets over the course of the academic year to address a wide range of subjects. Each meeting comprises a lecture by invited scholar followed by an open discussion.
