  1. The Many Encounters of Thomas Kuhn and French Epistemology.Simons Massimiliano - 2017 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 61:41-50.
    The work of Thomas Kuhn has been very influential in Anglo-American philosophy of science and it is claimed that it has initiated the historical turn. Although this might be the case for English speaking countries, in France an historical approach has always been the rule. This article aims to investigate the similarities and differences between Kuhn and French philosophy of science or ‘French epistemology’. The first part will argue that he is influenced by French epistemologists, but by lesser known authors (...)

  • Models and Methods: Sketch of a Field Study.Matthew Chrulew & Vinciane Despret - 2015 - Angelaki 20 (2):37-52.
    The case of the Arabian babblers is a controversial and significant one in ethology that troubles standard sociobiological theories of the evolution of behaviour. In this chapter from her book Naissance d'une théorie éthologique, Vinciane Despret examines the divergent models and methods of the scientists studying the babblers, their different epistemologies and ontologies that are only truly visible and understandable if one takes into account their particular ways of comporting themselves with the birds, and the babblers’ active role in writing (...)

  • Sensible Atoms: A Techno-Aesthetic Approach to Representation. [REVIEW]Sacha Loeve - 2011 - NanoEthics 5 (2):203-222.
    This essay argues that nano-images would be best understood with an aesthetical approach rather than with an epistemological critique. For this aim, I propose a ‘techno-aesthetical’ approach: an enquiry into the way instruments and machines transform the logic of the sensible itself and not just the way by which it represents something else. Unlike critical epistemology, which remains self-evidently grounded on a representationalist philosophy, the approach developed here presents the advantage of providing a clear-cut distinction between image-as-representation and other modes (...)

  • Gaston Bachelard and His Reactions to Phenomenology.Anton Vydra - 2014 - Continental Philosophy Review 47 (1):45-58.
    In this essay, I show how the French philosopher of science, Gaston Bachelard, reacted to the idea of phenomenology at different stages of his philosophical development. During the early years, Kantianism (through a Schopenhauerian reading of Kant) had the greatest influence on his understanding of phenomenology. Even if he always considered phenomenology a valuable method, Bachelard believed that the term noumenon is necessary, not for a full description of reality, but for probing possible sources of reality. For him, phenomena are (...)

  • Gaston Bachelard y las manos de Albert Flocon.Hans-Jörg Rheinberger - 2016 - Revista de Humanidades de Valparaíso 8:205.
    Este artículo se ocupa del grabado de mano de Albert Flocon y la descripción poiética que realiza la pluma de Gaston Bachelard. Se procede a discutir los ejemplos del conjunto de trabajos que surgieron de la cooperación entre Flocon y Bachelard; el grabador en cobre y teórico de la perspectiva, y el filósofo de la ciencia y estudioso de imágenes literarias de la segunda mitad del siglo XX de París.

  • The Constitution of Paleobiological Data.Marco Tamborini - unknown
    The objective of this dissertation is to write the first pages of the biography of paleobiological data. I will focus on i) the genesis of this kind of data as it emerged in German stratigraphy and paleontology between the mid 19th and the early 20th centuries and ii) how the conceptualization of the paleontological data was reformulated and taken as the starting point for studying the patterns of the diversity of life in deep time between the 1940s and 70s. This (...)

  • Anchoring Depth Ontology to Epistemological Strategies of Field Theory: Exploring the Possibility for Developing a Core for Sociological Analysis.Sourabh Singh - 2018 - Journal of Critical Realism 17 (5):429-448.
    ABSTRACTCritical realism's insight into depth ontology creates the possibility for re-imagining sociology as a science of the social world. However, critical realism has yet to gain a strong foothold in sociological analysis. Challenging the available criticism of critical realism, I argue that its main flaw is its inability to draw an appropriate epistemological strategy from its insights into depth ontology. I propose that this limitation can be overcome when we anchor the depth ontology of critical realism to the two-step epistemological (...)

  • French Philosophy of Science, Structuralist Epistemology, and the Problem of the Subject.Tom Eyers - 2014 - Southern Journal of Philosophy 52 (2):267-285.
    This article examines the multiple relations between the rationalist tradition of French philosophy of science exemplified by the work of Gaston Bachelard, and the rethinking of the relation between science and ideology undertaken by Louis Althusser and a young Alain Badiou in the 1960s. Both Bachelard and Althusser are interrogated for the philosophy of language that underpins their respective visions of scientificity; in turn, the problem of the subject is posed, in part through an investigation of Althusser's inheritance and transformation (...)
