Concepts change. For instance, the concepts of tolerance or evolution have changed through time. But how exactly have these concepts changed? What shifts have they undergone, and to what effects? Also, what is the best way to model these conceptual shifts?
Questions such as these are important to both culture and science. Here at Concepts in Motion we address them as philosophers, working together with computer scientists, computational linguists, information specialists, and other humanities scholars. In particular, we focus on tracing changes in concepts relevant to sciences such as logic, mathematics, and biology – concepts such as axiom, consequence, explanation, evolution, and life.
