Aspects of current history of philosophy of science in the French tradition
When Thomas Uebel invited me to write a paper on the current situation of history of French philosophy of science, I must admit that I found the task a little daunting. I do not think that it is possible to do justice to the diverse research programmes that scholars in different countries are developing, or to present them as a coherent whole. I would like, however, to make some remarks on the state of this particular field of study, with two provisos: one is that my perspective is somewhat centred in my experience in Great Britain, although it is not limited to it, the other is that I do not aim at an overall presentation of the current state of the study of history of French philosophy of science. Inevitably, my remarks will mainly refer to that part of French philosophy of science that is the object of my own research. I am confident, however, that Anastasios Brenner in his commentary will correct my necessarily partial presentation. Department of Philosophy
