Axis Interdisciplinary Research in History and Philosophy of Science

History of Science, History of Text 2016–2017

As in previous years, we will study:
– How sources bear the mark of the environments in which they were produced,
– We will ask the question of how the documents attest knowledge,
– We will be interested in the history of writing by compilation,
– We will carry out research on the organization that the actors have given to the recorded knowledge, looking at the parts in which they have structured their texts.

Organisers: Florence Bretelle Establet and Stéphane Schmitt, (CNRS, SPHERE)
