Address for submission:

The Henri Poincaré Archives were created in 1992 by Gerhard Heinzmann around the project of publishing the scientific, academic and private correspondence of Henri Poincaré. A bibliographic brochure produced by Laurent Rollet then objectified the intensity and diversity of Poincarean studies throughout the 20th century in epistemology, philosophy, history of science and history of mathematics; two new bibliographical compilations published in 2000 and 2005 largely confirmed this observation.

On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the Archives Henri-Poincaré proposes to publish a thematic dossier of the journal Philosophia Scientiae on the recent directions taken by Poincarean studies.

All recent and original contributions on the scientific and philosophical work of Henri Poincaré are welcome: his scientific, academic and social position, the construction of his character, the constitution and functioning of Poincarean networks, the circulation of his contributions. Contributions aimed at putting into perspective the methodological difficulties posed by the study of such an important personality for the history of scientific knowledge are also welcome, at a time when many historians are defending approaches “from below”…
