History and Philosophy of Science studies science just as science studies the world. From global warming to gene technologies, from cyber-relationships, to religion and politics, science and technology mediate change and help us understand the world and our place in it. History and Philosophy of Science brings together teaching and research in the history of science and medicine, the philosophy of science, the social studies of science and technology, Social Theory and Computer Applications.
History and Philosophy of Science seeks to bridge the two cultures of the sciences and the humanities. And with science and technology's central place in modern life, we need to think about scientific knowledge and its applications in a systematic, critical way. While most of us are not professionally trained to manipulate scientific knowledge independently, we can acquire a form of scientific and technological literacy that enables us to understand 'where the science is coming from' and what it means for us and our needs.
The University of Melbourne began teaching History and Philosophy of Science in 1946, one of the first places in the world to do so. It is one of the most eclectic programs in the university, embracing interests in 'almost everything'.
The strategic direction for our School is underpinned by three guiding scholarship principles: scholarship-of-change; curated and vertically integrated design scholarship; and tri-polar scholarship.
We aim to address compelling, contemporary issues such as climate change, globalization and rapid urbanization in ways that facilitate cultural change through design. Our scholars, (students, lecturers and researchers), are risk-takers in the sense that they endeavor to bring about change both in design practice and by practicing design. These changes are pursued through refinement, criticism and experimentation and within an ethical framework of social justice and human rights. The Scholarship-of-change principle provides criteria for the appointment of staff and Adjunct Professors and in the appointment of practitioners to sessional teaching positions.
