Université de Bordeaux

Why Bordeaux?

Bordeaux is fast becoming an international hotspot for the emerging field of philosophy “in” science. This unique interdisciplinary topic is central to the PhilInBioMed network, of which the University of Bordeaux is an active associate.

Created in 2017, the PhilInBioMed network includes philosophers, biologists and medical doctors among its members, and has organized over 60 seminars, 20 workshops and 6 conferences. In November 2018, the University of Bordeaux hosted the first international meeting of the network, followed by the second meeting in October 2019, thus affirming its leading international position in this domain.

Other associate institutions include Arizona State University (USA), the University of Sydney (Australia), the University of Cambridge (UK) and the University of Exeter (UK).
