The Jacques Loeb Centre for History and Philosophy of, and Critical Dialogues in, the Life Sciences at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel, supports advanced research on a variety of topics related to the life sciences and serves as an interdisciplinary forum for scientists, historians and philosophers of science.
The Centre bases its activities on the idea that one cannot fully comprehend science without also taking a historical and philosophical perspective, with history providing details of scientific developments and philosophy leading to a deeper understanding of scientific progress and pitfalls. Integrating the history and philosophy of science and establishing a connection between the sciences and humanities - ideas prominently promoted by the founder of the history of science George Sarton - are central to the Centre's work.
