ISHPSSB 2017 ABFHiB meeting

Hitherto, most meetings of the International Society for History, Philosophy and Social Studies of Biology (ISHPSSB) have occurred in North America or Europe, with one meeting in Australia. The occurrence of the ISHPSSB 2017 Meeting in Brazil will stimulate a stronger participation of Latin American researchers. The Brazilian History and Philosophy of Biology Meeting (EHFB) of ABFHiB is a medium sized series of annual conference that started in 2003. It brings together not only Brazilian researches, but also scholars from other South American countries.
