Anglo-French Seminar in the History and Philosophy of Science
The Anglo-French Seminar in the History of Philosophy of Science (AFHOPOS) takes place once per term. It brings together English and French historians of philosophy of science to discuss a common area of enquiry. AFHOPOS is organised in collaboration between the Maison Française d’Oxford (MFO) and the Oxford Centre for the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology (OCHSMT) and the Oxford Centre for Intellectual History.
The AFHOPOS seminar of Hilary 2020 is dedicated to the natural philosophy and philosophy of mathematics of Pierre Gassendi and features two speakers:
Dmitri Levitin (All Souls, Oxford), “Why Gassendi is more Representative of the Early Modern Transformation in Natural Philosophy than Descartes”
Delphine Bellis (Université Paul Valéry, Montpellier), “The Philosophy of Mathematics of Pierre Gassendi”
