These selections from Le système du monde, the classic ten-volume history of the physical sciences written by the great French physicist Pierre Duhem (1861-1916), focus on cosmology, Duhem's greatest interest. By reconsidering the work of such Arab and Christian scholars as Averroes, Avicenna, Gregory of Rimini, Albert of Saxony, Nicole Oresme, Duns Scotus, and William of Occam, Duhem demonstrated the sophistication of medieval science and cosmology

La théorie physique : son objet, sa structure by Pierre Maurice Marie Duhem( Book )

La théorie physique. Son objet, sa structure, l'ouvrage majeur de Pierre Duhem en philosophie des sciences, a mis plus d'un siècle à devenir un classique. Mais on n'en retient le plus souvent que quelques passages, comme la critique des expériences cruciales ou le refus du mécanisme, qui est compris comme une espèce d'explication métaphysique. Bien d'autres questions de philosophie de la physique y sont pourtant abordées : l'usage des modèles, la construction des grandeurs, la question de l'approximation, le rapport entre mathématiques et physique, l'usage de l'histoire dans l'enseignement de la physique. Pour expliquer les raisons pour lesquelles la réception de cet ouvrage a été différée, cette nouvelle édition s'ouvre par une présentation inédite des différents contextes intellectuels et politiques dans lesquels Duhem et ses thèses ont été lus au xxe siècle. Une bibliographie oriente les lecteurs dans la littérature secondaire consacrée à Duhem. Chaque chapitre bénéficie de nombreuses annotations qui permettent de reconstituer la genèse de cet ouvrage, de le situer par rapport à la philosophie et aux sciences de son temps et de comprendre la progression des arguments. It took more than a century to The Aim and Structure of Physical Theory, the major work of Pierre Duhem in the philosophy of science, to become a classic. But usually only some of its passages are remembered, such as the critique of crucial experiments or the rejection of Mechanism which is analyzed as a kind of metaphysical explanation. Yet, many other questions in the philosophy of physics are addressed in this book: the use of models, the construction of magnitudes, the question of approximation, the relationship between mathematics and physics, the use of history in the teaching of physics. In order to explain the reasons why its reception has been delayed, this new edition opens with an unpublished presentation of the different intellectual and political contexts in which Duhem and his

The origins of statics by Pierre Maurice Marie Duhem( Book )

19 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If ever a major study of the history of science should have acted like a sudden revolution it is this book, published in two volumes in 1905 and 1906 under the title, Les origines de la statique. Paris, the place of publication, and the Librairie scientifique A. Hermann that brought it be enough of a guarantee to prevent a very different out, could seem to outcome. Without prompting anyone, for some years yet, to follow up the revolutionary vistas which it opened up, Les origines de la statique certainly revolutionized Duhem's remaining ten or so years. He became the single-handed discoverer of a vast new land of Western intellectual history. Half a century later it could still be stated about the suddenly proliferating studies in medieval science that they were so many commentariesonDuhem's countlessfindings and observations. Of course, in 1906, Paris and the intellectual world in general were mesmerized by Bergson's Evolution creatrice, freshly off the press. It was meant to bring about a revolution. Bergson challenged head-on the leading dogma of the times, the idea of mechanistic evolution. He did so by noting, among other things, that to speak of vitalism was at least a roundabout recognition of scientific ignorance about a large number of facts concerning life-processes. He held high the idea of a "vital impetus passing through matter," and indeed through all matter or the universe, an impetus thatcould be detected only through intuitiveknowledge
