History and Philosophy of Physics (2015/2016)

Histoire et philosophie de la physique (2015/2016)

*  *  *

Published on Tuesday, January 05, 2016


This seminar is designed as a place of exchange between historians of physics, philosophers of physics, physicists and students in relevant disciplines . Although the program this year has no specific theme , it reflects the interest of the organizers for the questions that lead us to cross interdisciplinary boundaries : between physics and philosophy between history and philosophy, between theoretical construction and experience , between physics and other sciences.


Axis History and Philosophy of Science of Nature
