Abstract
Cette étude montre que les réflexions épistémologiques de Poincaré émergèrent dans le cadre de ses recherches scientifiques et qu’elles furent en partie inspirées par sa lecture de savants philosophes comme Helmholtz et surtout Maxwell. Elle donne une analyse systématique des textes philosophiques publiés par Poincaré vers 1900, au moment où il juge que la physique des principes constitue le sommet de l’évolution des théories. Enfin, elle met en rapport certaines de ses thèses sur la physique avec l’Analytique et la Dialectique transcendantales kantiennes.This study shows that the epistemological reflections of Poincaré emerged as part of his scientific researches and they were partly inspired by his reading of Helmholtz and especially Maxwell. It provides a systematic analysis of philosophical texts published by Poincaré about 1900, where he finds that the physics of principles is the culmination of the evolution of theories. Finally, it brings together some of his theses on physics with Kant’s Transcendental Analytic and Dialectic
