Michel Serres Website

Michel Serres is a philosopher specialized in epistemology, a professor as well as a writer. Serres is not only an elected member of the prestigious French Academy (March 29th 1990) but he has also received France’s highest decoration, the National Order of the Legion of Honour. He taught at Vincennes, Paris I (from 1969 on) and Stanford University (from 1984 on) as professor of the history of science. His research not only focuses on the history of science but he is particularly interested in the possible links and interdisciplinarity between so-called hard sciences and social sciences. He has been instrumental in broadening debates on the relationship between various types of science so as to include them in broader cultural and political debates.
