    [Mathematical Anatomy: Muscles According to Stensen].Raphaële Andrault - 2010 - Early Science and Medicine 15 (4-5):505-536.
    In his Elementorum Myologiae Specimen, Steno geometrizes “the new fabric of muscles” and their movement of contraction, so as to refute the main contemporary hypothesis about the functioning of the muscles. This physiological refutation relies on an abstract representation of the muscular fibre as a parallelepiped of flesh transversally linked to the tendons. Those two features have been comprehensively studied. But the method used by Steno, as well as the way he has chosen to present his physiological results, have so (...)

    André Charrak, Contingence et nécessité des lois de la nature. La philosophie seconde des Lumières, Paris, Vrin, 2006, 224 pages, 26 €. [REVIEW]Raphaële Andrault - 2009 - Astérion 6.
    Quel est le statut des lois de la nature ? Telle est la question posée dans ce livre d’André Charrak. L’auteur montre que la philosophie des Lumières envisage le problème de la connaissance sous l’angle de « l’application des principes aux phénomènes et des sciences les unes aux autres » (p. 199) et qu’il existe un lien direct entre la possibilité de l’application de la mathématique à la physique dans les savoirs positifs et les partis pris explicites sur le statut (...)

    Marc Parmentier, Leibniz-Locke, une intrigue philosophique. Les Nouveaux essais sur l’entendement humain, Paris, Presses universitaires Paris Sorbonne, 2008, 283 pages, 16 €. [REVIEW]Raphaële Andrault - 2010 - Astérion 7.
    Dans cet ouvrage, Marc Parmentier entreprend une étude des Nouveaux essais dont l’originalité est à la fois de ne pas adopter le seul point de vue leibnizien et de tenir compte de la diversité des objets philosophiques abordés dans ce monumental ouvrage. La thèse centrale qui guide l’auteur dans cette entreprise est la suivante : les Nouveaux essais ne doivent pas être lus comme un simple dialogue philosophique, mais plutôt comme une « intrigue philosophique ». Elle permet de faire droit (...)

    Spinoza’s Missing Physiology.Raphaële Andrault - 2019 - Perspectives on Science 27 (2):214-243.
    In his Handbook of Physiology, the nineteenth-century physician Johannes Müller cited the third part of the Ethics entirely: no one, he held, had ever explained "static connections among passions" better than Spinoza. Earlier, Goethe referred to the famous physiologist Boerhaave as a "master of clinical medicine and the last disciple of Spinoza". And more than a century later, in his book Looking for Spinoza, the neuroscientist Antonio Damasio considered that Spinoza's Ethics offered the proper philosophical framework for understanding the neurology (...)

    The Mind–Body Problem and the Role of Pain: Cross-Fire Between Leibniz and His Cartesian Readers.Raphaële Andrault - 2018 - British Journal for the History of Philosophy 26 (1):25-45.
    This article is about the exchanges between Leibniz, Arnauld, Bayle and Lamy on the subject of pain. The inability of Leibniz’s system to account for the phenomenon of pain is a recurring objection of Leibniz’s seventeenth-century Cartesian readers to his hypothesis of pre-established harmony: according to them, the spontaneity of the soul and its representative nature cannot account for the affective component of pain. Strikingly enough, this problem has almost never been addressed in Leibniz studies, or only incidentally, through the (...)
