Jean-Jacques Szczeciniarz, awarded with Prix Georges Charpak of the Academy of Sciences of France




The French Académie des sciences, in its session of June 30, 2015, wanted to emphasize its interest in the research of Jean-Jacques Szczeciniarz with awarding him the Prix Georges Charpak :

" Le prix est décerné à Jean-Jacques Szczeciniarz, professeur à l’université Paris Diderot à Paris, historien philosophe des sciences de tout premier plan.
Son travail a porté sur l’astronomie, puis sur les mathématiques.
Sa thèse est une étude passionnante de l’oeuvre de Copernic et la façon dont celui-ci a subverti la tradition issue de Ptolémée et Aristote.
Ses efforts portent sur la reconquête des liens entre la philosophie et les sciences en acte. Il est un des rares philosophes français à pouvoir travailler dans les mathématiques contemporaines récentes. Après un travail sur l’œuvre de Gauss il s’efforce actuellement de mettre au jour l’intérêt philosophique de l’œuvre de Grothendieck et de certaines thématiques récentes de la physique mathématique."

[" The Prize awards Jean-Jacques Szczeciniarz, professor at the University Paris Diderot in Paris, Historian Philosopher of Science of first rank.
His work has focused on astronomy and then on Mathematics.
His thesis is a fascinating study on the work of Nicolaus Copernicus and the way he subverted the outcome tradition of Ptolemy and Aristotle.
Its efforts focus on regaining links between philosophy and science in action. It is one of the few French philosophers can work in recent contemporary mathematics. After working on the work of Gauss it is working to uncover the philosophical interest of the work of Grothendieck and some recent topics of mathematical physics."]



Jean-Jacques Szceciniarz is Director of the History, Science & Philosophy Department of the University Paris Diderot and member of the Research Unit SPHERE, UMR 7219.
