  • Alan Baker, from Swarthmore College, will give a talk "Matching Mathematics to the World", on Thursday October 27 2011, from 2 pm to 4 pm, in the conference room of the IHPST.

    Abstract :
    Recent philosophical work on applied mathematics has focused on the way that mathematical structures match the structure of physical phenomena. Debate has centered on abstraction, in which aspects of physical structure are left out in the mathematical model, and on physically non-meaningful solutions, in which aspects of the mathematical structure have no physical analogues. In this talk I focus on whether it even makes sense to talk of ‘the physical structure’ in this context. Using as examples the classical problem of the bridges of Konigsberg and the more contemporary Manhattan river crossing problem, I argue that unique structure is almost never inherent in a physical phenomenon. Finally I explore whether adopting a more game-like stance toward applied mathematics may be helpful.

    Ari Duwell : "Benign convergent realism"

    Abstract: In this talk I will attempt to revive and develop a realist view that has its roots in Duhem, and was later developed by Carrier. I extend the view by incorporating some of van Fraassen’s recent insights into scientific representation. The view offered, Benign Convergent Realism (BCR), will navigate around the old pessimistic induction from the history of science (Laudan) as well as the new pessimistic induction (Stanford). Moreover, I will argue that it does justice to the No-Miracles Argument, in the sense that it does provide an explanation of the success of science.

    Soazig Le Bihan : "Why understanding matters"

    Philosophers of science have not traditionally been interested in the notion of scientific understanding. A common view is that any notion of scientific understanding that is not reducible to having objective explanation amounts to a subjective feeling that is potentially misleading. Under that view, the truth of scientific explanations is what is conducive of genuine understanding. A problem with that view is that theories that are false, partially or completely, seem to loose all epistemic value. I want to challenge this view and propose a notion of understanding that recognizes the epistemic value associated with the understanding that comes from (partially) true theories and also from (partially) false theories.

  • Knowing and Understanding Through Computer Simulations

    International Conference

    Paris, 16-18 June 2011


    (first announcement)

    Organizers: Anouk Barberousse (IHPST) and Marion Vorms (IHPST)

    Scientific committee: Jacques Dubucs (IHPST), Paul Egré (Institut Jean Nicod), and Cyrille Imbert (Archives Poincaré)

    Computer simulations are widely used in contemporary science. They lay in the heart of climate science for atmosphere is an especially complex system, whose evolution is impossible to understand without computers. Neither empirical inquiry, nor mathematical reasoning through theoretical models are sufficient to study the highly non-linear behavior of our planet's climate.

    The aim of this conference is to address the epistemological problems arising from the massive use of computers in today's science and to inquire into the nature and status of simulation-based knowledge. According to the traditional picture, the two legitimate sources of scientific knowledge are experimentation and reasoning. One is justified in believing a proposition only if one has either an empirical or an a priori warrant for this belief. Computer simulations, prima facie, provide neither. The algorithms used in implementing theoretical models are more often than not black boxes for their users, who have no other choice than to trust those who have written the programs. The relationship between inputs and outputs of simulations is usually epistemically “opaque”, as “most steps in the process are not open to direct inspection and verification” (Humphreys, 2004). This results in a loss of understanding. Moreover, climate science relies on simulations run on powerful workstations and on mainframe computers, involving large, international teams of researchers, so that understanding is distributed among many scientists.

    Acknowledging the centrality of computer simulations in contemporary science raises questions about central epistemological notions as rationality, knowledge, justification, and understanding. In order to answer these questions, the conference will bring together scholars from different disciplines: philosophers of science, epistemologists, sociologists of science, computer scientists, as well as climate scientists. They will address the following problems.

    The first set of problems is about epistemic opacity broadly conceived: to what extent is a scientist justified in believing the output of a simulation when she is not able to follow all the steps of the computation? The nature of computer-based mathematical proofs has already been investigated by epistemologists (Kripke, Tymoczko, Burge); their results may be extended to cases where the output of the computer is about empirical knowledge. What is the nature of the knowledge so obtained? To what extent is it empirical? What role do a priori elements play?

    The second set of problems deals with the collaborative aspects of computer-based science. For sure, science in general is a collaborative enterprise and no individual scientist could master the state of the art in any domain by her own means. However, computer simulations require a novel form of scientific collaboration. In order to design and launch a computer simulation, it is not only scientists in the same domain, or peers, that are obliged to collaborate, but physicists (sometimes from different sub-domains) with algorithm writers and computer scientists. No single scientist has control on all aspects of the simulation. We need a detailed study of the various functions of trust in such big scale collaborative knowledge construction. What is the status of the knowledge so obtained? What kind of control set-up is it possible to elaborate?

    The third set of problems is about the nature of expertise. The nature of computer-based knowledge in climate science is not only an epistemological problem, but it has also important sociological and political dimensions. Whereas scientific experts play a more and more important role in our society, the value and use of experts and expertise are being challenged. Are scientific experts relying on computer simulations a special case, as climate skepticism may suggest? Does it have any impact on the trust laypeople should, or should not, confer on these scientists’ expertise? How does experts’ judgement guide decision-making in such highly uncertain situation? And what are the implications of such deep uncertainty for decision rules such as the precautionary principle?

  • Thursday, June 10, 2010, at 11 am (Large Room of the IHPST): talk of Sorin Bangu, from the University of Cambridge: "Best Friends or Worst Enemies? Bridge Laws in Inter-theoretic Relations"

    Abstract: Despite some differences of detail, a common assumption of many models of inter-theoretic reduction is that a certain kind of postulate, called by E. Nagel a 'bridge law', plays a key-role in enabling reductions. Thus, if we take - customarily, and roughly - an emergent phenomenon to be one for which its reduction to (or derivation from) its microphysical basis is impossible, then these laws seem to be the reductionist's best friend and the emergentist's worst enemy. This assumption is corroborated by the standard philosophical examples of allegedly successful reductions in physics and psychology.

    In this paper I argue that the role of the bridge laws in inter-theoretic reduction is actually more complex than this assumption takes it to be. I discuss an example from physics, involving first order phase transitions, which has two important features: (a) it provides a clear candidate for an emergent phenomenon, and (b) the emergence / irreducibility claim can be traced back to the adoption of a certain bridge law. Thus, the thesis I'll try to substantiate here is that there are contexts in which the role of the bridge laws is simply the opposite of what the received wisdom has recommended so far: they can also be the emergentists' best friends and the reductionists' worst enemies.

    Foundations of quantum mechanics have always been at the center of philosophical debates. Since the 1990's, quantum information has renewed the interest in these debates among physicists, and has added a new perspective. This colloquium brings together experts in these debates working in France and abroad. It is part of a strong recent activity in the domain of the foundations of physics in the greater Paris, and in particular in an ANR-funded project which involves the IHPST, the CREA and the CEA (see
