Philosophy of Science Research Group
The Philosophy of Science Research Group is an interdisciplinary network of researchers at the University of Guelph who investigate theoretical, ethical and historical questions in science and medicine.
The group is composed of faculty and graduate students from across campus. Its aim is to promote the kind of cross-fertilization that advances both science and the humanities.
Feminist Philosophy Research Group
The Feminist Philosophy Research Group at the University of Guelph brings together philosophers working in numerous areas of feminist research.
Our areas of research include epistemology, environmental philosophy, ethics, history of Western philosophy, social and political philosophy, and philosophy of science. They are all approached through a feminist lens.
Political Philosophy Research Group
The Political Philosophy Research Group began in 2011, and includes social and political theorists in the Philosophy and Political Science Departments. We warmly welcome interested PhD students in social and political philosophy. We usually choose recent texts that we all want to read, and meet informally over snacks. Recent books discussed include Amartya Sen's 'The Idea of Justice' (2009) and Wendy Brown's 'Regulating Aversion: Tolerance in the Age of Identity and Empire' (2008). Participating faculty include Karen Wendling, Monique Deveaux, Omid Payrow Shabani and Karen Houle in Philosophy, and Theresa Lee and Candace Johnson in Political Science.
