I am the director there of the Centre de philosophie des sciences et sociétés (Center for Philosophy of Science and Society, or CEFISES). I am also a co-editor of the journal <a href="https://www.ptpbio.org/"><em>Philosophy, Theory, and Practice in Biology.</em></a></p>

My work has appeared with leading university presses and journals, and I have spoken at a variety of prestigious conferences on four continents. <a href="/pence-cv.pdf">You can find a copy of my CV here,</a> and my e-mail address is <a href="mailto:charles@charlespence.net">&lt;charles@charlespence.net&gt;.</a>
