Epistemology and methodology of interdisciplinary research

Training objectives: Make researchers aware of the epistemology and the methodology of interdisciplinary research based on knowledge of history and philosophy of science.

This training starts on March 30, 2023. It will be given in French.

Description of the training: 5 modules of 2 hours each, led by different speakers. Each module will address specific content through historical-conceptual courses and the case study methodology. Half of the time in each module will be devoted to discussion and exchange with participants.
Interdisciplinarity will be approached from the prism of the process of constructing the identity of the researcher, as well as the study of the conditions requiring, promoting, or hindering interdisciplinarity in various fields of knowledge. The themes of the modules are as follows:

  • Thursday, March 30, 2023, 9-11 am
    Module 1: About complexity: interdisciplinarity, between biology and philosophy
    Caroline Angleraux (IHPST, Labex Who Am I?)
  • Friday, March 31, 2023, 9 am-1 pm
    Module 2:The challenges of interdisciplinarity: a philosophical approach
