Axis History and philosophy of mathematics

Mathematics 19th and 20eth, History and Philosophy 2015–2016


Organisers: Simon Decaens, Samson Duran (GHDSO), Juan-Luis Gastaldi (Univ. Bordeaux Montaigne, SPH), François Lê (Université d’Artois, LML), Anne-Sandrine Paumier (IHES) et David Waszek (Univ. Paris 1, IHPST)



This working group aims to build an informal space for PhD students working on 19th and 20th Century, whether they are historians or philosophers, to discuss and work together as well as with researchers, students in mathematics and master students.

No prerequisites are expected from participants. On the contrary, the idea is to share historical knowledge, mathematical skills, philosophical insights and points of view. Our starting points will go from recent papers, discussed together, to mathematical theories (for example, group representation) or more “classical” historical and philosophical writings (Weyl, Lautman, …). This year, the group will be organized in series of sessions united by a theme. A large part of each session will be devoted to questions and discussion.
