The lecture of Michał Heller entitled 'Ontology of the Planck Scale' delivered during the 'Philosophy in Science' Copernicus Center International Seminar.The goal of the seminar was to analyze philosophical issues in science from both historical and analytical perspectives.

Philosophy in Science is a method of philosophical reflection which is carried out in the context of the sciences. Philosophical ideas have often influenced -- and continue to influence -- the development and evolution of scientific theories; traditional philosophical problems are intertwined with empirical theories and the assumptions of science should become the subject of fruitful debate. Philosophy in Science should be distinguished from philosophy of science: while the latter views science 'from beyond', the former stems from scientific practice. The conception of philosophy in science was developed by Michael Heller, who clarified its basic principles in a paper published in 1986 entitled "How is Philosophy in Science possible?"

The seminar is funded from the research grant The Limits of Scientific Explanation, awarded by The John Templeton Foundation.
