Philosopher Nancy Cartwright selected as winner of the Barcelona Hypatia European Science Prize for her outstanding contributions to philosophical research
The Barcelona Hypatia European Science Prize in its third edition recognises Prof Nancy Cartwright MAE, Philosopher of Science, Professor of Philosophy at Durham University and Director of its Centre for Humanities Engaging Science and Society (CHESS), for her outstanding contributions to philosophical research.
Her work has resulted in a new understanding of the nature of scientific theories and of causation and have held far-reaching consequences for a range of different fields of knowledge, including both natural and the social and human sciences; in particular, she has laid the foundations for an approach combining rigour and realism that aims at evidence-based policy and has had a profound impact on societies and policies across Europe and beyond.
The award ceremony will take place in the Saló de Cent, or Barcelona City Council’s main hall on Thursday 27th October 2022.
