    Carnap's ideal of explication and naturalism.Pierre Wagner (ed.) - 2012 - New York, NY: Palgrave-Macmillan.
    Carnap's ideal of explication has become a key concept in analytic philosophy and the basis of a method of analysis which may be considered as an alternative to various forms of naturalism, including Quine's conception of a naturalized epistemology. More recently, new light has been shed on this aspect of the classical Carnap-Quine debate by contemporary philosophers. Whereas Michael Friedman articulated a notion of relativized a priori which owes much to Carnap's internal/external distinction, André Carus attempted to restate Carnap's ideal (...)

    Carnap's Theories of Confirmation.Pierre Wagner - 2011 - In Dennis Dieks, Wenceslao Gonzalo, Thomas Uebel, Stephan Hartmann & Marcel Weber (eds.), Explanation, Prediction, and Confirmation. Springer. pp. 477--486.
    The first theory of confirmation that Carnap developed in detail is to be found in "Testability and Meaning". In this paper, he addressed the issue of a definition of empiricism, several years after abandoning the quest for a unique and universal logical framework supposed to be the basis of a clear distinction between the meaningful sentences of science and the pseudo-sentences of metaphysics. The principle of tolerance (according to which everyone is free to build up his own form of language (...)

  7. Carnapian and Tarskian semantics.Pierre Wagner - 2017 - Synthese 194 (1):97-119.
    Many papers have been devoted to the semantic turn Carnap took in the late 1930s after Tarski had explained to him his method for defining truth and his work on the establishment of scientific semantics. Commentators have often argued that the major turn in Carnap’s approach to languages had already been taken in the Logical Syntax of Language, but they have usually assumed that Carnap was happy to subsequently follow Tarski and adopt Tarskian semantics. In this paper, it is argued (...)

    Schlick and Carnap on Definitions.Pierre Wagner - 2023 - In Paola Cantù & Georg Schiemer (eds.), Logic, Epistemology, and Scientific Theories – From Peano to the Vienna Circle. Springer Nature Switzerland. pp. 175-192.
    In the 1920s, Carnap and Schlick both made an important use of definitions in their main publications: Schlick, in his Allgemeine Erkenntnislehre (1918, 2nd ed. 1925) and Carnap in Der logische Aufbau der Welt (1928, mostly written by 1925). In this paper, we first provide an analysis of the kinds of definitions that are distinguished in these books and a few other papers, and we then propose a systematic comparison of Schlick’s and Carnap’s diverging conceptions of definitions in the 1920s, (...)

    Introduction.Michel Bourdeau, Gerhard Heinzmann & Pierre Wagner - 2018 - Philosophia Scientiae 22:3-15.
    L’idée d’organiser à Paris un congrès international de philosophie scientifique « fut émise pour la première fois au cours d’une conversation à Berlin, en juillet 1932, entre Hans Reichenbach et Louis Rougier ». Dans une lettre du 6 août 1932 adressée à Reichenbach, Rougier mentionne déjà des contacts avec le ministère des Affaires étrangères pour obtenir des subventions et le 6 novembre de la même année, il propose à Reichenbach de tenir la manifestation en 1934 [voir Padovani 2006, 239-–240...

    Carnap's Critique of Philosophy and His Attempt at a Reconstruction.Pierre Wagner - unknown
    Like other members of the Vienna Circle, Carnap criticized traditional philosophy for its lack of clarity and precision, as is well-know from such papers as "The elimination of metaphysics through the logical analysis of language" (1932) and many other writings. In 'The Logical Syntax of Language' (1934), while still entertaining the idea that, in some sense, metaphysics is nonsense, Carnap's critique of philosophy is based on different grounds and aimed at different authors. In this book, his critique of philosophy actually (...)

    Carnap, l’espace et le néokantisme.Pierre Wagner - 2020 - Cahiers Philosophiques 161 (2):11-26.
    Bien que Carnap soit surtout connu pour son appartenance à l’empirisme logique, qui rejette le synthétique a priori et la métaphysique kantienne en général, sa thèse sur l’espace (1922) fut rédigée dans le double contexte des multiples variétés du néokantisme et d’une réflexion mathématique, physique et philosophique sur le concept d’espace. Dans cette thèse et dans le mémoire de 1920 sur la géométrie, il s’efforce de surmonter les difficultés soulevées par le concept d’espace en en distinguant plusieurs significations et plusieurs (...)

    L'approche cognitive du mental. Le point de vue de l'intelligence artificielle.Pierre Wagner - 1999 - Revue Philosophique de la France Et de l'Etranger 189 (3):291 - 315.
    Le cognitivisme, conçu comme une théorie computationnelle de l'esprit, s'inspire du traitement informatique des données. Cet article examine les thèses principales du cognitivisme, ainsi que ses origines dans les travaux de Turing, les débats qu'il suscite, et les difficultés qu'il soulève. Le cognitivisme n'est, en définitive, que l'une des conceptions philosophiques possibles à l'intérieur du cercle des sciences cognitives. Cognitivism is a comptutational theory of mind which originates from computer science and data processing. This paper examines the main tenets of (...)

Il ne s'agit pas ici de dresser l'inventaire des problèmes philosophiques que soulèvent les sciences ou la science, ni d'évaluer les réponses qui y furent apportées, mais, à l'inverse, de s'interroger sur les manières multiples dont les philosophes se sont représenté la science - état d'un sujet connaissant ou activité savante - système d'énoncés ou méthode de recherche, voire ensemble de disciplines constituées - et les problèmes afférents à (...)

    The Linguistic Turn and Other Misconceptions About Analytic Philosophy.Pierre Wagner - unknown
    Some common notions about analytic philosophy - that it is uniformly anti-metaphysical or indifferent to the history of philosophy - are clearly misconceived. However the impression that analytic philosophers are essentially linguistic philosophers is not entirely false and hence less easy to refute.

    Wittgenstein et les machines de Turing.Pierre Wagner - 2005 - Revue de Métaphysique et de Morale 2 (2):181-196.
    Dans l'un des rares textes de Wittgenstein où il est question des machines de Turing, l'auteur écrit que celles-ci « sont les hommes, qui calculent ». L'étrangeté apparente de l'aphorisme disparaît si l'on dissipe certaines confusions fréquentes relatives aux machines de Turing. Une fois éclairci le sens littéral de ce passage des Remarques sur la philosophie de la psychologie, on peut s'interroger sur ce que Wittgenstein veut dire, dans le § 1096. Comme souvent chez l'auteur, on peut lire dans ce (...)
