the
Call for Application*



The FCT International Doctoral Programme in
<http://phd-fctas.fc.ul.pt/>Philosophy
of Science, Technology, Art and Society <http://phd-fctas.fc.ul.pt/> is
based on the widely recognized need to clarify the metaphysical horizons
that support many of the current research programmes in natural sciences as
well as in formal and human sciences. The Programme also aims to understand
the impact of the scientific and technological culture in the contemporary
world (ecological equilibriums, clinical practices, political experiences
and aesthetical experimentation).



The Programme aims to develop an understanding of the nature, scope and
limits of scientific knowledge in what it regards science’s most iconic
results (material and ideal). Those facts of true knowledge are confronted
with the major traditions of philosophy of science, from the more
formalised models – explaining science through the analysis of its logical
procedures – to the phenomenological methodologies – describing the forms
of scientific conscience – including cognitive sciences. At the same time,
thanks to the collaboration of experts from the areas of Law, Biomedicine,
Sociology, Technology and Art, the Programme also aims to think those
scientific dimensions which are not directly cognitive – for instance,
those referring to the existence of scientific communities, or the forms of
rationality present in contexts of procedural argumentation or clinical
dialogue. Conversely, the Programme will explore the cognitive dimension of
arts and technologies, where truth is materialized in artefacts and
instruments.



The Programme is designed to train experts in Philosophy of Science,
Technology, Art and Society who may contribute to the development of the
various forms of scientific knowledge, both at a theoretical, and at a
technical or artistic level, and also to the deepening of critical
awareness of the consequences of modern science and technology over our
condition of humans always  incomplete.
