May 1998 the Department was renamed to "Department of Philosophical Problems of Interdisciplinary Research".
May 2006 the Department was renamed to "Department of Interdisciplinary Problems of Scientific and Technological Development".
Heads of departments:
Vladimir Budanov October 2016 – present time

Vladimir Arshinov, 1992 -2012
History of the sector
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 February of 1990 the head of the research group became Rozin Vadim.
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:
1 Study of problems of interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity in modern science and technology and innovative development.
2 Study of problems in synergetic convergence of scientific, scientific-technical and socio-humanitarian knowledge.
3 Study of the historical epistemology of science and technology.
4 Research of methodological and social problems of the technical Sciences, engineering and modern technoscience, and convergent technologies.
5 Study of social problems of technology assessment and engineering ethics.
