The traces of the philosophical work. A sociologically - inspired programme for the history of a discipline and case - analysis
Conférence organisée par le Centre for Science, Technology, Society Studies at the Institute of Philosophy, Academy of Sciences.
Présentation de la conférence
In this paper I will sketch a program of research aiming at developing an approach of philosophical discoursivieties from a “materialist” perspective, namely an analysis that starts from the traces of a work (the archive) and underlines the collective dimension of this activity. I will take into account the French case, which is the one I know better. Finally I would like to discuss the extent to which this approach would contribute to a dialogue between, on the one hand, philosophy and epistemology, and, on the other hand the SHS.
