Abstract

I discuss the philosophy of François Dagognet as the inheritor of the French tradition in philosophy of science that, following Dominique Lecourt, we all now call historical epistemology. I investigate a particular aspect of this tradition. Dagognet has argued that Gaston Bachelard embarked on a journey away from Léon Brunschvicg’s intellectualism. I discuss this aspect of the relation between Brunschvicg’s and Bachelard’s philosophies, and Dagognet’s reading of it. I argue that Dagognet has continued historical epistemology’s evolution away from intellectualism, and towards materialism.
