Philosophy Forum: History, Philosophy and Method

Join the Philosophy Forum and the Undergraduate History Council as we jointly present on a vexing question for historians, philosophers of history and historians of philosophy and science: what is history? What kind of questions does it ask and answer? Is history an art or a science? We will approach the question from both the standpoint of the historian engaged in the practice of writing history and the philosopher interested in the epistemology and methodology of history.

All are welcome! As always, food will be provided.

February 10th
