Discipline: Philosophy, History of Science, Epistemology, Mathematics, Logic History of Modern Cosmology.

Teaching career researcher and Stories Philosophy of Science and Philosophy of Science, coupled with a scientific clean as Assistant, Lecturer, Professor (1980-2010) in French Universities: Picardie, Bordeaux, Paris-Diderot.
My first thesis was the result of work carried out in the Artificial Intelligence Lab at the University of Montpellier, especially with Jean Sallantin Dr. CNRS in Computer Science. It is the starting point of a collaboration with the CRIM and LIRMM Montpellier. These works were numerous and are described below
My lessons from mathematical logic led me to develop an activity also in Artificial Intelligence from two aspects that have been disconnected and connected, the formalization of the argument and the philosophy of argumentation

My work in history of science focused primarily on the history of cosmology that I developed for itself, but I was brought along to work on assumptions of contemporary cosmology. I had this effect perfect my training in astronomy and mathematics. The conclusion part of this work was my doctoral thesis on Copernicus, then work on ancient mathematical astronomy of Ptolemy and Aristotle.
Finally, in this area, recent work has been shaped contemporary assumptions, especially in collaboration with researchers from the APC, Astroparticle and Cosmology, the Department of Physics. This has resulted in several publications, some are in progress.

Finally, I developed according to aimed objectives in cosmology and logic and AI own mathematical activity which focused on mathematics essential and necessary for cosmology, particularly in complex geometry on several variables and related topics integral geometry. This work resulted in the mathematics seminar in which I participated since 1990.

My career as a mathematician has always been linked to previous targets although it has also developed independently. An important step has been my participation in organizing a satellite symposium in complex geometry for the part mainly history, the history of contemporary complex geometry, at the Global Symposium for Mathematics in 1994, then work on transformations integrals. And especially in the organization of the International Conference Geometry in the Twentieth Century in 2001.


In Cosmology and History and Philosophy of Cosmology, I continued the work of Jacques Merleau-Ponty. Philosophically, I opened questions about cosmology and philosophy of cosmology that are problematized in purely philosophical about time and space. I picked transforming the open issue by Immanuel Kant on cosmology. My question is logically reach the ontological questions related to cosmology and thus the nature of physical reality. Historical work first and then philosophy has also focused on different analyzes of cosmology as a science, in particular on the specific nature of this science and the nature of its assumptions.
Work to test possible formalizations based on theories from category theory are in progress. The development of current work builds on theories developed by mathematical physicist Roger Penrose who are developing a program from twistor theory and the role of complex geometry.

In mathematics, I worked under the direction of the seminar Norguet-Ofman on integral transformations in geometry several complex variables. Part of the activity is also focused on issues desingularization with goals in sight.
Independently but in parallel, I developed a research program on the role of geometry in physics which resulted in a ANR - cf. below, « Geometry and Physics at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries ».

In Artificial Intelligence, in addition to the philosophical work, specific work on the artificial and formal submissions has developed around a group of researchers from LIRMM Montpellier, which are associated researchers of the Faculty of Mathematics. The result was an extension of AI program that incorporate in their constitutions formalizations objections made to them, and thus are formed of arguments from programs making use of many ingredients (various non-classical logics, geometry, measure theory), category theory.
A text that I wrote preprint « On the Reasoned Assumptions by Jon Doyle » (50 p.) It was one of the texts that I defended in my thesis.
Several versions of a concept that we call "semi-empirical theory" have been implemented. Objects on which are recorded the work classifications were in art history, educational programs and learning of elementary geometry and, most recently, the legal argument. Publications went with, especially in the French Journal of Artificial Intelligence (RFIA). I worked at that time on « fixed point theorems ».
And questions that opens is « the production of reciprocity ». I take part in a new ANR proposed by the Montpellier group on debate and argument.

Direction, animation labs and research teams

-  Riemann Seminar : ENS Ulm and Laboratory Sphere, since 2001 (co-directed with I. Merker and J. Smadja): the work of Riemann (once a month).

- This led to the creation of an ANR (2006-2011): Geometry and Physics at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries (direction Jean-Jacques Szczeciniarz).
The seminar became part of the activities in the framework of an ANR program. The aim was to establish a descriptive and conceptual understanding of the types of relationships that are established and stabilized between geometry and physics and made possible the emergence and development of mathematical physics of the twentieth century. It was also to understand the reasons for the separation, which was the basic physics of the twentieth century between General Theory of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics.

Scientific activity has led specific seminars:

  • a) Riemann seminar (above), seminar Lie (sessions led by Joël Merker), joint sessions with the History of Physics seminar led by Olivier Darrigol
  • b) Working Group, a group of around Nancy 2 : Philippe Nabonnand physicists, mathematicians, Germanist, studying the Riemann Essay « On assumptions that are Basis of Geometry » (two to three annual meetings alternately in Nancy or Paris). A website is built with the subject of Riemann physics and the history of physics in the nineteenth century.

The objective of this ANR was to build a scalable source of reflection on the geometry and history both philosophical and mathematical. Two kinds of publications have been completed and are still ongoing.
– A series of monographs press, an annotated translation and modernized large parts of the work by Sophus Lie (Hermann) by Joël Merker, Von Staudt projective geometry by Philippe Nabonnand. Five others are planned in the year: Moebius Weyl, Lobachevsky, Gauss. This series will continue for several years published by Hermann.
– A Source Book with classic texts in the History of Geometry, introduced and discussed.

-  Management Program at the College International de Philosophie with Dominique Flament: Complex numbers, history and epistemology. 1999-2004

-  Categories and IA working group LIRMM Montpellier and Paris 7
A working group of Montpellier I, Paris-Diderot was formed. Courses were given in this context: Introduction to the theory of categories (Daniel Guin, Dominique Luzeaux, Sallantin Jean, Jean-Jacques Szczeciniarz), 2007-2008. And several study days were organized under the HPS Department. An international convention doctoral schools is underway.

-  Animation with Marco Panza of the Chair of Excellence Senior Philosophy of mathematics whose winner is a professor at the University of Notre Dame USA), Michael Detlefsen co-managed with the University of Nancy 2 (Gerhard Heinzmann) and partly College France (Jacques Bouveresse).
This chair, with the subject: « Evidence Ideal, Ideal of Proof », cf. site, has developed many national and international activities (seminars, workshops) and gave our University Paris Diderot international recognition.

Presentation of teaching activities

Education Current: Master History and Philosophy of Science at the University Paris Diderot, LOPHISS (Logic Philosophy, History and Sociology of Science)

Master I created with Claude Debru - ENS Ulm, founder - and that was jointly accredited with the University Paris 1 and Paris 4 until 2010.
I assured the co-director with Jean Gayon Paris until 2010.
It is now in a different format master LOPHISS SC2 as our co-empowerment is made with ENS and Ecole Polytechnique, which provides two courses: Complex Systems and Cognitive Sciences (SC2 =). Teaching: History and Philosophy of Mathematics, Philosophy of Physics, General Philosophy and History of Philosophy, Mathematics for non-mathematicians. I am responsible for the mention.
All these teachings are recent, they date from the implementation of this master: 2005.

Presentation Levels
My teaching Philosophy of mathematics lectures at M1, as well as Philosophy of Physics and Philosophy and General Introduction to the History of Mathematics and Science General History. I assured courses in History of Mathematics M2.

I assure education in the Master of Medicine in health’s on issues of argumentation construction of disease.

All these formations are original (master), presential. They assume two types of memory duty tutored in M1, and M2 memory. I assure directions memory in both cases. 3 at level M1 (the year, 2010) 2 at level M1.

All of these lessons are now presented in our new model which has been rated A + by AERES expertise.


A partnership is being formed with the University of Geneva for the History and Philosophy of Physics, and also with the University of Notre Dame at M1 and M2 via Michael Detlefsen, winner of the Chair of Excellence in our Department. This partnership will count as a member at the University Nancy 2 and ENS Ulm. I make sure classes in this framework at the Summer School in May-June 2010, 2011, 2012 in Paris 7 Diderot University.


Students sent for research stays: University of Brasilia (1), University of Montreal (1), 2008-9.
Implementation of agreements (pooling of EU masters with mathematical and physical local, European, Bielefeld by agreements by C. Debru).
Visiting professors with whom I worked for lessons as my colleague Ivahn Smadja.
