About our project

The research project Mary B. Hesse’s ‘New Epistemology’. Principles and Legacy aims to explore all the aspects that should be considered in order to provide a comprehensive account of Mary B. Hesse’s view and legacy, the latter including the impact her ideas have on the ongoing debate on scientific realism (with special attention to the issue of scientific modelling).
The project is funded by the Portuguese Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT) and is hosted by the Institute of Philosophy of the NOVA University of Lisbon (IFILNOVA). Started in January 2022, the project will run until December 2023.
Among the results of the project, a collective volume on Mary B. Hesse will be published in 2024, in theSpringer series “Women in the History of Philosophy and Sciences“.
