History and Philosophy of Physics

Histoire et philosophie de la physique

*  *  *

Published on Tuesday, October 03, 2017 by Céline Guilleux

Summary

The 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 drive us to cross disciplinary boundaries: between physics and philosophy, history and philosophy, between theoretical construction and experience, between physics and other sciences.
