The journal

Philosophia Scientiæ is a peer-reviewed scientific journal which publishes original works in the fields of epistemology, the history and philosophy of sciences and in analytical philosophy. It is open to works from all scientific disciplines and notably publishes studies on logic, mathematics and physics. One of the journal's strong themes is German or Franco-German contributions to epistemology and the history of sciences.

The journal was founded in 1996 by Gerhard Heinzmann and is published by the Laboratoire d’Histoire des Sciences et de Philosophie – Archives Henri-Poincaré with the support of the CNRS Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences, the University of Lorraine and the CNL (French National Book Centre).
