Social and Formal Epistemology Seminar

Together with Thomas Boyer-Kassem, Isabelle Drouet, and Cédric Paternotte, we felt the need some three years ago to create a research seminar in formal and social epistemology in France to structure in more depth this field of research, which is locally still in its infancy.

We try to invite scholars from both the national and international communities. We also use the seminar to develop interactions with scholars from close relevant fields that analyze the same objects as epistemologists.

Students, be they undergrads or graduate students, are particularly welcome.

Videos of the seminar are available here.

Our next speaker is David Chavalarias (CAMS, EHESS, Paris, France), who will give a talk with title ““Modéliser la part collective de l’évolution des sciences : le jeu Nobel”.
