Axis Interdisciplinarity in history and philosophy of science

4 Epistemological cultures, practices, work


Thematics of research / Members / 2018–2022


Many colleagues gathered around the issues that have been worked on in this sub-axis intend to pursue this research together. They set themselves the following objectives for the period 2018-2022:
  • Preparation of a collective work (book or special issue of journal) on the various mathematical cultures of the ancient world. The main purpose is to finalize the research conducted in the context of SAW and to identify the theoretical contributions to these questions that this particular site offers.
  • Continuing work on epistemological values. We intend to finalize the work begun on abstraction as well as that started on rigor. But we also intend to go back more deeply on the set of values ​​related to each other of simplicity, ease, ease, brevity. We will also look at value constellations. Finally, we will develop more systematically a historiographical approach to epistemological values.
  • Various cultures in a given type of activity. For the next five-year period, we have decided to place the work we have begun on the history of science education under the aegis of research on cultures. It will be necessary to better understand the types of scientific activities that have been conducted in teaching contexts, paying attention to material environments, practices, social organization of collectives and epistemological values. As has been the case for "mathematical recreations", we expect this approach to science practices in the classroom context will allow us to better distinguish the different cultures to be distinguished and will provide tools for better to situate these cultures in a general history of science.
