SophiaWarsaw Group of the Philosophy and Fundamentals of Science is a part of the international collective of investigators of different scientific interest, the assembly being managed by prof. Eamon Conway (Limerick University) and interested in making inquiries jointly about the interdisciplinary problems in the frame of the topic "Culture, Technology and Religion in Society". The character of the activity of the SophiaWarsaw Group is consistent with the interdisciplinary character of the inquiries being made in the frame of the topic "Culture, Technology and Religion in Society", since the member of SophiaWarsaw Group are researchers interested in and dealing professionally with the scientific problems of culture (especially, of philosophy, theology, sciences concerning the books and national heritage), technological sciences (especially, informatics and electronics) and social sciences (especially, economy).

Purpose and programs of the SophiaWarsaw Group

The purpose of the Sophiawarsaw Group of Philosophy and Fundamentals of Science is to explore the humanism of the knowledge of the nature. Most of the scientific and technological achievements have appeared to be the social relevance of the development of applied science. These days it could seem that the modern science constitutes an essential factor of the historical development of man as a cultural being. The main purpose of the group is to explore systematically the meaning of science for contemporary man. We have decided to pursue this insight along two converging lines.

On one hand, when we address ourselves to science to achieve the purpose, our interest should be strictly philosophical. We try to detect the philosophical presuppositions and implications of science as that operate in the constructive practice of science itself.

To this end we try to developed and adopt some approaches, which are applicable to the analysis of a branch of science or a science as a whole.

On the other hand, the outcome of the previously mentioned study, should be expected as enabling us to perceive that science is humane not only for the reason that it is produced by man, but also because it is in itself an agent fashioning man in a culturally new way following from the changes in the environment and their understanding.

As a consequence of the above, we are going to discuss the methodology to be applied in order to bring to light the humanistic significance of science as well as to examine the concrete meaning of science for its consumers, practitioners and creators as well as for their personal cultural and humanistic development.
