Rethinking scientific change and theory comparison : stabilities, ruptures, incommensurabilities? by Lena Soler( Book )

22 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colección de ensayos dedicados al análisis del cambio y de la estabilidad científica. Explora el equilibrio y la tensión que existe entre la conmensuarabilidad y la continuidad, por un lado, y la inconmensurabilidad y discontinuidad por otro. Trata algunas consecuencias fundamentales de la epistemologia en lo que se refiere a la naturaleza del progreso científico, la racionalidad y el realismo. En relación a estos temas, investiga un número de vías nuevas y repasa otros temas familiares, con un enfoque en historia y filosofía de la física, y un énfasis en el desarrollo de las ciencias cognitivas y de las reivindicadas ciencias "nuevas experimentales"

Science after the practice turn in the philosophy, history, and social studies of science by Lena Soler( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1980s, philosophical, historical and social studies of science underwent a change which later evolved into a turn to practice. Analysts of science were asked to pay attention to scientific practices in meticulous detail and along multiple dimensions, including the material, social and psychological. Following this turn, the interest in scientific practices continued to increase and had an indelible influence in the various fields of science studies. No doubt, the practice turn changed our conceptions and approaches of science, but what did it really teach us? What does it mean to study scientific practices? What are the general lessons, implications, and new challenges? This volume explores questions about the practice turn using both case studies and theoretical analysis. The case studies examine empirical and mathematical sciences, including the engineering sciences. The volume promotes interactions between acknowledged experts from different, often thought of as conflicting, orientations

Ce livre traite de questions épistémologiques controversées à propos des sciences. Sous la forme originale et conviviale d'une série de dialogues, les échanges abordent d'une part des questions posées à propos des diverses sciences contemporaines (nature du progrès scientifique, prétention à la vérité des théories scientifiques, limites de la connaissance humaine) et d'autre part des questions plus spécifiques liées à l'interprétation de la physique contemporaine

L'émergence d'un nouvel objet symbolique : le photon by Lena Soler( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THE GOAL OF THE PRESENT WORK IS TO SEE PHYSICS AS A LANGUAGE (IN THE SAUSSURIAN MEANING OF THE WORD), AND TO STUDY THE INTERNAL FUNCTIONMENT OF THIS LANGUAGE, IN PARTICULAR THE NATURE OF THE DIACHRONICAL TRANSFORMATIONS WHICH ARE PRODUCTED IN IT. THIS, IN THE FRAMEWORK OF A THEORIE IN WHICH THE MEANING OF A WORD DEPENDS OF THE SITUATION IN THE TOTAL STRUCTURE OF THE SYMBOLICAL SYSTEM THAT THIS TERM OCCUPIES, AND NOT OF A MORE OR LESS DIRECT RELATION WITH AN EXTRA-LINGUISTIC REFERENT. THE ANALYSIS FOCUSES ON DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF THE EMERGENCE OF THE CONCEPT OF PHOTON. A NUMBER OF SYMBOLICAL TRANSFORMATIONS, THROUH WHICH NOVELTY HAPPENS, ARE ANALYSED. WE SHOW, AFTER HAVING PROPOSED A TYPOLOGY OF DIFFERENT ANALOGIES, HOW ANALOGY IS IN MANY CASES A POWERFULL VECTOR OF INNOVATION. THIS, THROUGH A VERY DETAILLED STUDY OF THE MANNER MAX PLANCK PARALLELS IN 1900 A COMBINATORIC DEMONSTRATION OF BOLTZMANN, WHICH THIS RESULT : A NEW INSCRIPTION IN THE SYMBOLICAL NETWORK, THE FORMULA & =HV. WE ANALYSE ALSO THE PLASTICITY OF THE PHYSICAL MODELS, THE WAY BY WHICH WHAT IS AIMED AS A SAME THING IS MORE OR LESS COMPLETELY MODIFIED WITH TIME AND BY WHICH SOME EQUIVALENT AND IN THEMSELVES ANTAGONIST REPRESENTATIONS SOMETIMES COEXIST. WE SHOW MOREOVER HOW A PREEXISTENT SYMBOLICAL FRAME (THE ONE OF THE STUDIED PHYSICAL THEORIES), WITH HIS TYPICAL FORMS OF REASONING, HIS KEY-CONCEPTS, ETC. ON THE ONE SIDE STRUCTURE AND CONSTRAINT THE WAY THE QUESTIONS ARE EXPRESSED AND THE PROBLEMS ARE TREATED, BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE FUNCTION AS A TREMPOLIN FROM WHICH SOME NOVELTY CAN EMERGE. A SYSTEMATICAL CLASSIFICATION OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF CONSTRAINTS WHICH EXERT THEMSELVES ON THE THINKING ARE BY THE WAY PROPOSED
Les révolutions scientifiques( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait du résumé figurant sur la jaquette : L'histoire des sciences est jalonnée de grands bouleversements qui ont, pour certains, changé de fond en comble notre vision du monde. Comment ces révolutions scientifiques adviennent-elles? Quels en sont les moteurs et les mécanismes? Que remettent-elles en cause dans l'idée que nous nous faisons de la science? Philosophes, historiens des sciences et étudiants dialoguent tour à tour sur ces thèmes. A travers des exemples, nous comprenons la notion de changement de paradigme, introduite par Thomas Kuhn, en 1962, dans un livre célèbre intitulé La structure des révolutions scientifiques . Et nous prenons conscience du fait que la science n'est pas une pure aventure intellectuelle détachée de son contexte, mais se trouve traversée par l'histoire de part en part
