Summer School Philosophy in Biology and Medicine
PhilInBioMed is both an interdisciplinary institute located at the University of Bordeaux, France, and a national and international network connecting groups and people working at the interface between philosophy, biology, and medicine, with the shared conviction that conceptual and philosophical approaches can make a critical contribution to science and medicine.
From May 25th-29th 2020 PhilInBioMed and the ERC IDEM project organize the interdisciplinary summer school Philosophy in Biology and Medicine. 20 young scholars (PhD students and Postdocs) from the fields of philosophy of science, the life sciences, and medicine will come together and learn to use interdisciplinary methods to address conceptual issues in scientific research.
Course leaders will be there to present practical examples of interdisciplinary partnerships from their career, and to advise a nd interact with participants throughout the week. The program will also include different formats like group work, 'speed dating', and individual discussions, designed to further interactions between participants and between participants and course leaders.
This summer school is held at the Village de vacances Les Bruyères in Carcans, France. The idyllic location between the sea and the Lac d'Hourtin allows for a relaxed yet focused work environment.
This is a unique opportunity for young researchers to develop new interdisciplinary approaches that will benefit the participants throughout their career. Participants will not only learn about specific concepts and scientific advances, they will also learn to take a new look at their own subject of research.
