L'Interface entre science, société et politique publique dans la première modernité : le rôle des académies au 18e siècle

About the event

On November 28, at 11:30 AM, the ISSP will be delighted to host Professor Mitia Rioux-Beaulne, Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, Faculty of Arts, University of Ottawa. The event will be in French.

The scientific academies were born in Europe toward the end of the Renaissance, first as informal places of production of scientific knowledge. Monarchies have gradually made radiation tools. In the 18th century, Bernard de Fontenelle (1657-1757) and others gradually began to change its social and political role. It is from this re-definition that the first wave of resolutely modern theorization emerges from the necessity of establishing an interface between science, society and public policy.
