STS Colloquium Presentation: Miriam Solomon

Thursday, January 28 from 4:00-5:30pm, in Buchanan Tower, Room 1197, Dr. Miriam Solomon, Professor, Department of Philosophy (Temple University), will be delivering a talk entitled “The Historical Epistemology of Evidence-Based Medicine.

Since the early 1990s, evidence-based medicine has come to be a model of objectivity in medical research and practice. This paper explores how evidence-based medicine superseded other accounts of objectivity, and how the recent developments of translational medicine and precision medicine are responses to the shortfalls of evidence-based medicine.
