Rachel Ankeny and Sabina Leonelli have organized the session “Beyond Theory-Centric Studies of Scientific Progress: Repertoires in Biology”, to critically consider the constitution of research fields, disciplines, and groups through a broader philosophical analysis of scientific progress, which takes account of the materials, techniques, institutions, and financial arrangements underpinning research.

Together with Michael Dietrich, William Wimsatt, James Collins, Nathan Crowe and Joseph Rouse, they explored the relationship between scientific practices and repertoires (as well as other accounts of the organization of scientific communities), and by so doing aimed to help re-orient traditional philosophical discussions of progress and other major themes to promote richer engagement via philosophical approaches which incorporate consideration of the local, social, and material features of scientific practice.
