What is GEHUCT

The research group GEHUCT (Grup d’Estudis Humanístics sobre la Ciència i la Tecnologia; Humanistic Studies Group on Science an Technology) takes an interdisciplinary approach to the analysis of science and its applications. Our topics combine ethics and political philosophy, epistemology and philosophy of science, as well as medicine, especially epidemiology.

The current research focuses on the philosophy of public health. Public health contains different philosophical problems that we treat interdisciplinary through workshops, congresses, debates with experts in public health and epidemiology, and indexed publications.
