EPIQUE is the first project where science evolution will be studied at such a large scale (over the entire datasets like the WoS or MedLine). From the viewpoint of philosophy of science, it allows testing theories on science evolution and nature which have been formulated only by considering a few canonical texts (the “great scientists of the pasts”, which introduces numerous biases) on a corpus that can reliably be seen as a plausible testimony of scientific activity.

Résumé : Probably one of the most under-appreciated thinkers of the XIX century is Bernard Bolzano who during his pious life elaborated milestone mathematical results as well as pioneering and fundamental philosophical concepts. Amongst the latter, following Aristotle, Bolzano attempted to analyze the idea of Abfolge, or grounding, a notion that nowadays, after decades of neglect, is at the centre of a great philosophical debate. Bolzano's work on the concept of grounding is uncompleted but rich in brilliant insights.

It is usually assumed that logic is a normative science, as opposed to a descriptive science such as physics or biology. But what does that mean exactly? The answer will depend crucially on what logic actually is, and because modern logic has evolved dramatically from the time of Frege’s Begriffsschift (1879) to the present day, Frege’s classical conception of logical normativity cannot be ours anymore. This project is premised on the basic idea that the relationships between logic and computer science – more precisely: between logical proofs and computational programs – raise new issues about the very meaning of the normativity of logic.

Fondé en 2005, ce consortium réunit chaque année des chercheurs et doctorants des quatre universités. Il a eu à ce jour trois réunions scientifiques : Montréal (2006), Paris (2007), Toronto (2008), la prochaine réunion étant programmée pour 2008 à Duke. Le programme a eu pour effet de nombreux stages de chercheurs et de doctorants, des soutenances de thèses communes.

Fondé en 2006, ce consortium a pour principal objectif une école thématique annuelle. La première a réuni 25 doctorants et post-doc à Rovigo en septembre 2008 (7 doctorants de Paris 1 y ont exposé).
