The Arrow argument and Zeno’s dialectic

A new interpretation, closer to the original Greek text, of the ‘Flying Arrow’ argument will be proposed. The complex dialectic formed by the 4 arguments concerning motion will be exposed.

My first peer-review (in HPS)

This summer, I had the pleasant surprise of being contacted by the editor of the “Journal for General Philosophy of Science” asking me if I would be willing to review a manuscript dealing with one of the Zenon paradoxes. I did not at all expect to be (already) solicited for this kind of activity since […]

First quotation of my 1st article

This is not a fresh piece of information since I had noticed it in September 2019 (that is to say before the creation of this site): the first quote of my article on Zeno’s motion paradoxes can be found in a book… of math!! It is in the ‘Notable Writings’ section of the book ‘The […]

Self-publishing of a collaborative scientific book

I very modestly contributed (by providing the cover photo free of charge) to a collaborative scientific work edited by my best friend (and two of these colleagues); that of course concerns her area of expertise (phylogenetics) and the joyful particularity of this work is that it did without a ‘classic’ scientific editor; it is therefore […]

Writing history of my first article

Thus, 6 years will have passed between the idea of exploring the possible link between Zeno’s paradoxes and thermal motion and the final acceptance of the article resulting from this idea. It’s certainly rather long, but it should be remembered that I was starting from almost nothing (i.e. that I had a big bibliographical research […]

My current research project and my approach

In one sentence: First, make ‘fictional’ epistemology in order to propose, in a second time, new unexpected basics for fundamental/theoretical physics. In a little more detail: My current research project in epistemology is based on the following working hypothesis: Could the problems encountered by current fundamental/theoretical physics have their origin in implicit (or ‘forgotten’) assumptions […]

Classical Mechanics and States of Motion

The philosophical (even metaphysical) consequences of the position defended in my first article, thus the philosophical problems posed by the notion of ‘instantaneous velocity’ in the framework of classical physics will be examined, and a solution will be proposed. A first version of this article, entitled “In Defense of the Unavoidable Existence of States of […]

History of mathematics and Zeno’s paradoxes

Draft article in response to the article “When Science Confronts Philosophy: Three Case Studies” by Eric Dietrich: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10516-019-09472-9. It seems to me that including the case of the paradoxes of Zeno is not really wise compared to my own work (which E. Dietrich does not seem to have read) Connections between mathematics and the paradoxes […]
