The workshop The Politics of Law and the Behavioural Sciences | Historical Contexts and Conceptual Sources will be held in May 2015 at the European University Institute in Florence.
Message from the organizer:
“Are you interested in problems emerging at the intersection of law, science, philosophy, history? Would you like to learn more about the ways in which scientific findings are used in law and policy? Are you eager to discuss the importance of discourses on nature and natural laws for law and politics – from historical and contemporary perspective? Do you specialize in intellectual history (i.a. of the laws of nature in their connection to natural and positive law), history of science (i.a. of the behavioural sciences and law), biopolitics, philosophy of nature, or philosophy of law? If yes, please read our call for papers and submit your abstract by 20 February.”
