International Symposium Alexandre Koyré: Transatlantic Perspectives

November 3, 2014, La Maison Francaise - New York University

This symposium commemorates the 50th anniversary of Koyré’s death by focusing on his legacy in the United States. In the 1950s and 1960s, pioneers of the history of science such as Thomas S. Kuhn, I. B. Cohen, Marshall Clagett, Gérald Holton or Charles Gillispie have all admitted his influence on the discipline. The participants will discuss Koyré’s impact on the American intellectual landscape and the reception of his ideas among the historians and philosophers who sought to professionalize the teaching of the history of science in the United States. This event is organized by CIRHUS in partnership with La Maison Française, with the support of the Gallatin School and NYU Global Research Initiatives.
