Philosophic Thought in France and the United States: Essays Representing Major Trends in Contemporary French and American Philosophy

By Marvin Farber | Go to book overview

PRINCIPAL PUBLICATIONS ON THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE SCIENCES BROUGHT OUT IN FRANCE SINCE 1900*

André Lalande**

We include, here, under the title, Philosophy of the Sciences, (1) studies concerning the nature, structure, and method of the sciences, to which strict French usage gives the name, "epistemology" (in the etymological meaning of this word and contrary to English usage which employs it to designate theory of knowledge); (2) philosophical studies concerning mathematics and the physical sciences, which, through a rather regrettable usage, are intended when the word is unmodified, as in Academy of the Sciences, Faculty of the Sciences, and the like. It would be impossible to include everything which touches upon the "moral sciences," for this bibliography would then have to cover almost all philosophy.

In the second division, yet another distinction must be made, between questions relative to the constitution or method of these sciences, taken separately, this being a specification of epistemology as defined above; and attempts at philosophical synthesis of the "results" of any particular class of scientific research. But we have not felt it possible to mention

Professor Gaston Bachelard, who was to have written an article on Philosophy of Science in France, was prevented from doing so by accidental circumstances, to our great regret. The time not having permitted asking another writer to take his place, we are presenting herewith a bibliography of works which would have provided the materials. It has been contributed by Professor André Lalande.
