Identity in science and philosophy


July 29th 30th 2019 - Paris - France



We announce that the Workshop Identity in science and philosophy will be held from July 29 to 30, 2019 at Paris Diderot University, Paris, France.

This workshop is organized in the framework of the Laboratoire International Associé (LIA) "Identities, Forces, Quanta" (CAECE, SPHERE - Sciences, Philosophie, Histoire, UMR 7219, Université Paris Diderot). Continuing a tradition of fluid exchange between the University of Buenos Aires and the Paris Diderot University. The idea is to bring professionals from the area (Philosophers and scientists) together in a space conducive to discussion and exchange of opinions. The thematic axis is “Identity in science and philosophy”, proposals for talks that are not on the central topic but are linked to the philosophy of science, foundations of physics, foundations of chemistry, etc, will be welcome.
We look forward to your attendance. Because the time where the event will be held is small, we invite you to register by sending an email to:
