History of the Society

The idea of establishing a national professional society of historians and philosophers of science in Russia emerged among Russian participants of the 15th international Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science  (CLMPS-2015), which was held in Helsinki in August 2015.

Since 2007 Russia is not officially represented in the Department of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science (DLMPS) of International Union of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (IUHPS), which is the founder of  Congresses CLMPS since 1960. The membership of Russia in these international organisations, which continued the former USSR membership, has been stopped in 2007 because of formal reasons. The newly organized Russian professional socientiy would allow us to renew this membership.
