History of the sector 

The sector was found in September of 1992. The first name of the department was "Philosophy of self-organization and post-non-classical science".

 

In May of 1998 sector renamed in " Sector of Philosophical problems of interdisciplinary research".

In May of 2006 sector renamed in " Sector of Interdisciplinary problems of scientific and technological development". 

Heads of departments:

Arshinov Vladimir 1992 -2012

Vitaliy Gorokhov, 2012 - 2016

Sector "Philosophy of technology" ‑ was organized in June 1988 in the Department of philosophy of science and technology by the head of the sector Gorokhov Vitaly. Then it transformed into a research group.

In May of 1992 the research group joined to the "sector of Interdisciplinary problems of scientific and technological development".

In December of 2012 on the basis of this group the Academic Council of the Institute of philosophy RAS created the research "Center of philosophy of technology and engineering ethics" with international participation.

 

The main aims and objectives of the Sector are:
