Thesis title:

A tribunal for science: Reading Georges Canguilhem through his archives

My research has two aims: to contribute to the burgeoning field of Canguilhem studies by emphasising the ethical aspect of his history of science, and to elaborate an original method to problematise the relations between science and politics. 
To achieve them, I will bring together Canguilhem’s vitalism and his history of science (through selective study of his complete works and his neglected manuscripts collected in Paris), and develop from his work a philosophical-historical method to ethically evaluate contemporary political uses of science.
