IAPh 2021: Welcome Address

After 4 days full of inspiring talks, our conference comes to an end - but an ending is always a new beginning! As Ruth Hagengruber points out in her welcome address:

“We live in challenging times.  Not only ‘white old boys’ are fighting back the culture of inclusion and diversification – but they are fighting windmills. They will not stop the flow of time, as there is a new kind of epistemology evolving. The path it takes changes our understanding of the world, of science and human values. We are going towards a new understanding of science while we move towards a new understanding of interrelatedness. This new epistemology is irreversible.”

– Ruth E. Hagengruber (Director of the Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Sciences), Welcome Address
