One of his father's clients, however, himself a Professor, understood that the young man had exceptional intellectual talents. After the war, he kept his resistant code name of Gilles. On line with these works, his next major opus, Formal Thought and the Sciences of Man , deals with the mathematical models that contribute to formalization in the human sciences.

It is based on the transcendental claim that mathematics have an a priori role in producing scientific knowledge. Scientific objectification is seen as a symbolic process through which what Grangerwill later call "formal contents" are generated. Scrutinized from the viewpoint of science in the making, the computational properties of the languages of science across fields of inquiry linguistics, economics, psychology are emphasized as reflecting specific rational practices of interest to the philosopher of science.
Within a few years, he managed to set up an active research group. As a "Center for Comparative Epistemology", it specialized in the study of the modes of knowledge production across scientific fields, with a strong emphasis on the philosophy of mathematics and logic. With its research seminar and his library, this CNRS-funded unit would soon attract students and researchers from around the world, in particular from Canada, where Granger has been a regular guest speaker and invited Professor.
A major event organized in by the Center was the Conference entitled "Wittgenstein and the problem of the philosophy of science". That same year, Granger published a book on Wittgenstein, followed, much later, by a translation of Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. Granger's Essay on the Philosophy of Style, published in , highlights stylistic variations in the formal analysis of magnitude, geometry, vectors, linguistic, and action theory. These variations are seen as the proper object of philosophy, whose goal is to interpret individual ways of construing the relation between form and content.
Philosophical knowledge is now seen as intimately linked to the exploration of stylistic comparisons between scientific modelizations. Pour une Connaissance Philosophique, published in , develops further the concept of philosophical knowledge as an interpretive endeavour, focussing on the stylistic variations and their specific types of formal contents. He authored no less that eight more books after his retirement.
He has exerted a deep influence on his students and colleagues. Two books have been devoted to his work. Carnets Paris: Gallimard, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. Essais sur la philosophie de Gilles Gaston Granger. Elisabeth Schwartz eds. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. He received a B. He was stationed in Berlin and interrogated highly-placed Nazis, returning to the United States in In that year, he also became the founding Director of that University's Center for Philosophy of Science, serving as Director until He received the Senior U.
He died in November at the age of Peter Kemp, born January 24, , passed away August 4, Originally educated in theology at the University of Aarhus, Denmark, but very early on he became interested in philosophy, in particular French philosophy, which he studied while attending various universities in Germany and France as a research scholar. He believed that each and every human being was irreplaceable and this made him very critical towards modern technology.
In the years before retirement he spent his time as a professor of pedagogical philosophy at the University of Aarhus. Peter Kemp wrote approximately 40 books, some of which introduced French philosophy to a broader Danish audience. Another part of his oeuvre was written in French. Jan Faye. Georg Kreisel After the war he returned to Cambridge and received his doctorate.
Kreisel was appointed a professor at Stanford University in and remained on the faculty there until he retired in Kreisel worked in various areas of logic, and especially in proof theory, where he is known for his so-called "unwinding" program, whose aim was to extract constructive content from superficially non-constructive proofs.
While a student at Cambridge, Kreisel was the student most respected by Ludwig Wittgenstein. Kreisel was also a close friend of the Anglo-Irish philosopher and novelist Iris Murdoch. They met at Cambridge in during Murdoch's year of study there.
Peter Conradi reports that Murdoch transcribed Kreisel's letters into her journals over the next fifty years. According to Conradi, "For half a century she nonetheless records variously Kreisel's brilliance, wit and sheer 'dotty' solipsistic strangeness, his amoralism, cruelty, ambiguous vanity and obscenity. After retirement Kreisel lived in Salzburg, Austria.

Auflage Weingartner Laws of Nature, Springer He was a highly relevant intellectual in the Spanish milieu, and well known abroad for his contributions to the philosophy of cosmology and biology. It seems not too far-fetched to say that he was a Spanish Russell: a logician by training, founder of the Barcelona group in logic, who unfolded his talent and opened up his interests to a much broader range of issues, becoming a public figure.
After , he would abandon the Univ. In his early phase, as professor at Barcelona and founder of its logic group, he published texts on elementary logic, on set theory, on second-order logic. But during the s some experiences would change his life and orientation. He started working for the editorial house Salvat and collaborating with renowned naturalist Felix Rodriguez de la Fuente in the publication of an encyclopaedia of animal life, Fauna.
This would lead to a life-long engagement with related topics, including his opposition to bullfighting, reflections on the question of animal rights, and the presidency of Proyecto Gran Simio Great Ape.

Earman, A critical look at inflationary cosmology. And the collection of papers Ciencia viva: Reflexiones sobre la aventura intelectual de nuestro tiempo , Ilya Prigogine In , he there received his doctorate with a thesis in mathematics. His lectures and essays covered themes from the concept of cause to scientific explanation, from Leibniz to Kant, from the laws of physics to the laws of nature, from the structure of physical theories to the progress of physics, not to mention the many technical articles on quantum mechanics and special or general relativity.
He became, not just one of the most important philosophers of the exact sciences, but the one who shaped the philosophy of physics in the German speaking world. In , he spent the winter term as an invited professor at the University of California in Irvine.
From to , he was a member of the Editorial Board of the journal Philosophia Naturalis. After his retirement in , he published a monumental investigation of the unity of physics in the face of incommensurable theories, Die Reduktion physikalischer Theorien.

In : General Journal for Philosophy of Science 42 , Dudley Shapere - Dudley Shapere was an internationally prominent philosopher of science. He studied at Harvard University as an undergraduate and graduate, receiving a doctorate in philosophy in In he was appointed the Z. During his career, he held visiting appointments at numerous universities and research centers, notably Rockefeller University, Harvard University, and The Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton. He served at the U. Shapere lectured worldwide regularly; his topics of highest demand were conceptual change, the concept of observation in science and philosophy, and the philosophical impact of evolutionary ideas in science.
Dudley Shapere is survived by his wife of 42 years, Hannah Hardgrave; their daughters Elizabeth and Christine Anne; his son Alfred and daughter Catherine by his previous marriage to Alfreda Bingham; and five grandchildren. Patrick Suppes Suppes was born on March 17, , in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He grew up as an only child, later with a half brother George who was born in after Patrick had entered the army.
His grandfather, C. Suppes, had moved to Oklahoma from Ohio. Suppes' father and grandfather were independent oil men. His mother died when he was a young boy. He was raised by his stepmother, who married his father before he was six years old.

His parents did not have much formal education. Suppes began college at the University of Oklahoma in , but transferred to the University of Chicago in his second year, citing boredom with intellectual life in Oklahoma as his primary motivation. In his third year, at the insistence of his family, Suppes attended the University of Tulsa, majoring in physics, before entering the Army Reserves in In he returned to the University of Chicago and graduated with a B.
Suppes was discharged from the Army Air Force in In January he entered Columbia University as a graduate student in philosophy as a student of Ernest Nagel and received a PhD in In the s Suppes and Richard C. Atkinson the future president of the University of California conducted experiments in using computers to teach math and reading to schoolchildren in the Palo Alto area.
At Stanford, Suppes was instrumental in encouraging the development of high-technology companies that were springing up in the field of educational software up into the s, such as Bien Logic. Seeded by a research grant in from the U. The students first used the system in During the s and s Suppes collaborated with Donald Davidson on decision theory, at Stanford.

Their initial work followed lines of thinking which had been anticipated in by Frank P. Ramsey, and involved experimental testing of their theories, culminating in the monograph Decision Making: An Experimental Approach. Such commentators as Kirk Ludwig trace the origins of Davidson's theory of radical interpretation to his formative work with Suppes.
