Thomas Kuhn (1922-1996) is widely considered as one of the most important philosophers of science in the 20th century. His book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (SSR) is also regarded as one of the most influential works in the philosophy of science. Kuhn famously introduced the concept of paradigm to analyse the history of science. He also developed the incommensurability thesis. Kuhn’s work contributed to the so-called historical turn in the 20th century philosophy of science. Its influence goes beyond philosophy of science and makes a profound impact on history of science, sociology of science, and the social sciences. In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Kuhn and the 60th anniversary of the publication of SSR, the conference aims to examine Kuhn’s contribution to contemporary philosophy of science, revisit his legacy for the history and philosophy of science, and reflect on the prospect of the Kuhnian philosophy of science.

Rationality is central to many scientific disciplines, including philosophy, psychology, cognitive science, and economics. This may suggest that research in these fields is conducted in close concert. But unfortunately, researchers from these disciplines are traditionally entrenched in separate academic sub-cultures and rarely collaborate and learn from one another. The aim of the International Rationality Summer Institutes (IRSI) is to overcome this division by creating an open-minded environment, within which students are exposed to state-of-the-art research on rationality from a super-disciplinary perspective. IRSI participants should return from the Summer Institute with the conviction that it is worthwhile crossing the borders of their home discipline.
