Jeroen Van Bouwel


I am a researcher specialised in the history and philosophy of economics and other social sciences, in social epistemology and in general philosophy of science.

My systematic work in philosophy has been centred on explanatory and scientific pluralism, that is elaborating our understanding of scientific pluralism in relation with more traditional topics in philosophy of (social) science like the theory of scientific explanation, causality, social ontology, scientific objectivity and values in science.

In my research, I always connect the philosophical problems to the actual scientific practice – both historical and contemporary. My most elaborate historical analysis up to now deals with the history of International Political Economy, analysing the sources of plurality and how it has been (and should be) dealt with within the discipline.

Paying close attention to the historical and social embeddedness of science in society (and how this is linked to plurality) also inspired my thinking, writing and teaching about the deep entanglements between science and democracy.
