An Integrated History and Philosophy of Science (IHPS) is both a historical philosophy of science (HPS) and a philosophical history of science (PHS). Following the first approach, epistemological issues are investigated in light of the historical development of the sciences. According to the second approach, particular historical episodes and narratives, or rather historiographic questions, are reconstructed by engaging with philosophical issues. An integration of both approaches enables to deepen our understanding of the interplay between philosophy and history of science and promotes more open and diverse perspectives on its synergetic effects.
