Amongst the main goals of the Society are:
- To stimulate and generally promote discussion and research in the metaphysics of science;
- To engage researchers working on connected topics in related areas,
whether in the sciences, social sciences, humanities, theology, etc.
- To foster a constructive dialogue with writers in contrasting
traditions, such as analytic metaphysics, feminist philosophy of science
and epistemology, experimental philosophy, general philosophy of
science, the philosophy of particular sciences (e.g., biological,
cognitive, social), and others.
