The Center of History of Sciences and Arab and Medieval Philosophies, founded in 1972 by Jean Jolivet et Roshdi Rashed, focuses his research mainly on the history of science (astronomy, mathematics, physics) and philosophies, from antiquity to the classical age, while focusing on located at the hinge of Greek, Syriac, Arabic, Byzantine, Latin and Hebrew traditions. Particular attention is given to the study of the Middle Ages. Other works (in the history of applied sciences) deal with scientific exchanges between various cultural areas in the nineteenth century.


Born from the desire of the CNRS to invest in the field of the history of Arab and medieval sciences and philosophies, the Center occupies today, thanks to the human and scientific means at its disposal, an eminent and recognized international position in the field of research that is his. In fact, by the quality and the number of publications that come out of it, by the initiatives taken by its members in the organization of its activities, the state of research in several sectors is no longer what it was. only a few decades ago.


It is indeed thanks to this institution and its members that there exists today a Society-International Academy of History of Sciences and Arab Philosophies (SIHSPAI); two international journals, Arabic Sciences and Philosophy (Cambridge University Press) and Aleph: Historical Studies in Science and Judaism; notebooks, Oriens-Occidens; collections in France and abroad, etc. The Center has become a place where foreign professors like to stay for a while, to acquire knowledge and experience.


The Center is also bound by several cooperation agreements with foreign institutions (Japan, Italy, Morocco, etc.). It has organized no less than four summer schools in three years, as well as several international symposia. He has also undertaken several collective research projects, fundamental for some (major editions), applied for others (multi-language lexicon).


The Center of History of Sciences and Arab and Medieval Philosophies is a team of SPHERE, joint research unit of CNRS and higher education (UMR 7219), associated with the University Paris 7 Diderot and University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. It houses the Gramata team of this last university.
