    Leibniz’s Syncategorematic Infinitesimals II: Their Existence, Their Use and Their Role in the Justification of the Differential Calculus.David Rabouin & Richard T. W. Arthur - 2020 - Archive for History of Exact Sciences 74 (5):401-443.
    In this paper, we endeavour to give a historically accurate presentation of how Leibniz understood his infinitesimals, and how he justified their use. Some authors claim that when Leibniz called them “fictions” in response to the criticisms of the calculus by Rolle and others at the turn of the century, he had in mind a different meaning of “fiction” than in his earlier work, involving a commitment to their existence as non-Archimedean elements of the continuum. Against this, we show that (...)

    Logic of Imagination. Echoes of Cartesian Epistemology in Contemporary Philosophy of Mathematics and Beyond.David Rabouin - 2018 - Synthese 195 (11):4751-4783.
    Descartes’ Rules for the direction of the mind presents us with a theory of knowledge in which imagination, considered as an “aid” for the intellect, plays a key role. This function of schematization, which strongly resembles key features of Proclus’ philosophy of mathematics, is in full accordance with Descartes’ mathematical practice in later works such as La Géométrie from 1637. Although due to its reliance on a form of geometric intuition, it may sound obsolete, I would like to show that (...)

    Universal Local Espinozismo Francês, Ou: Francês, Outro Esforço Para Ser Sistemático!).David Rabouin - 2013 - Veritas – Revista de Filosofia da Pucrs 58 (2):272-294.
    A figura de Spinoza, com o seu sonho louco de querer desenvolver uma filosofia total “conforme a ordem da geometria”, como se esta ordem fosse intangível e fixa uma vez por todas, cristaliza particularmente bem as dúvidas que o espírito de sistema pode fazer nascer. Não somente ele representa a caricatura de uma metafísica que gostaria de se fazer passar por ciência, mas esta ciência, ela mesma, aparece como a caricatura de uma racionalidade arrogante e dobrada sobre ela mesma. Explicar (...)

  13. The Oxford Handbook of Generality in Mathematics and the Sciences.Karine Chemla, Renaud Chorlay & David Rabouin (eds.) - 2016 - Oxford University Press UK.
    Generality is a key value in scientific discourses and practices. Throughout history, it has received a variety of meanings and of uses. This collection of original essays aims to inquire into this diversity. Through case studies taken from the history of mathematics, physics and the life sciences, the book provides evidence of different ways of understanding the general in various contexts. It aims at showing how individuals have valued generality and how they have worked with specific types of "general" entities, (...)
