Another New Eidyn Pilot Project: "Disagreement in the Natural Sciences: Truth, History, and Conceptual Change"

A new great Eidyn pilot project is starting with the goal of addressing the nature of peer disagreement in the natural sciences!!!

Why do scientists, who have access to the same resources and experimental evidence, may nonetheless disagree about the interpretation of their scientific findings? Can realism be upheld in the light of scientific disagreement? Is there a truth at the end of the inquiry, whereby disagreement is only temporary and undesirable ‘background noise’? Or should we rethink realism itself to make room for a pluralistic stance? These are some of the questions that the project will address.
