Histoire et philosophie des sciences (HPS)



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.
