Special Issue of the *Journal for General Philosophy of Science* on Climate Science.

Guest Editor:  Eric Winsberg (University of South Florida)

Submission Deadline:   August 1st, 2012

Climate science is at the center of many of the world’s greatest
environmental challenges, yet philosophy of science has only recently begun
to pay attention to it.  In this special issue of the Journal for General
Philosophy of Science, we are looking for papers that explore climate
science from a variety of philosophical points of view: epistemology,
methodology, ethics, science and democracy, etc.   We expect contributions
on the foundations of climate science, the confirmation and testing of
climate models and predictions, the role of ethics and values in climate
science, the nature of explanation in climate science, the role of
simulations and experiments, the relative importance of data and models, and
any other topic related to climate science and philosophy.

Submission Details:   Please send a pdf version of your paper (maximum 8000
words) prepared for blind review.  The first page of the manuscript should
contain the paper’s title, and a short abstract of 100-150 words.   The pdf
should be attached along with contact details for the corresponding author
and all other authors (if any) in an email addressed to Eric Winsberg
