Commentary on Anastasios Brenner's 'Epistemology Historicized'

Chimisso, Cristina (2014). Commentary on Anastasios Brenner's 'Epistemology Historicized'. In: Galavotti, Maria Carla; Dieks, Dennis; Gonzalez, Wenceslao J.; Hartmann, Stephan; Uebel, Thomas and Weber, Marcel eds. New Directions in the Philosophy of Science. Philosophy of Science in a European Perspective (5). Springer, pp. 737–746.



By starting from a reflection on the article by Anastasios Brenner which precedes mine in this edited book, I discuss the 'difficult' relation of history and philosophy, and draw examples from the tradition of historical epistemology. On this basis, I evaluate the current status of history of philosophy of science, and I conclude with the defence of a truly historical approach to philosophy of science and of the philosopher's reflexivity.
