Pierre Duhem When Hadamard Hadamard wrote in [17]:- Hermite , or that of , whose works he followed better than most of us could I mean the most specialised in mathematics ! But in a general way, all the great mathematical ideas, all the one which were truly fruitful, were familiar to him. From this time I owe him revelations, insights how broad, how disdainful of details to the profit of that which was really essential! which for me, effortlessly and as if unconsciously, replaced long months of study. Duhem knew he was right and boldly published the rejected thesis in 1886. This certainly did not help his relations with Berthelot, as one might imagine, and the bad news for Duhem was that Berthelot became French Minister of Education in 1886. Duhem meanwhile worked on a second thesis, this time wisely choosing a mathematical topic which was less likely to be affected by the fate of his first thesis. His mathematical work on magnetism was accepted in 1888 but he suffered all his life because of Berthelot. In spite of having grown aware of Duhem's scientific triumph over him, Berthelot could not bring himself to acknowledge this to the extent of letting him obtain a chair in Paris. At stake was the renown of the theoretical interpretation which Berthelot gave to his vast and most valuable experimental researches. It was all too human of Berthelot to protect that interpretation from Duhem's devastating criticism which, if delivered from a chair in Paris, would have forced Berthelot into the open. Herein lies the clue to the slighting which affected Duhem for thirty years, from his first doctoral dissertation to his very death, that is his whole academic career. Without a careful look at it a presentation of Duhem's life would not appear that poignant drama which it actually was.

3. Quotation By Pierre Duhem
Pierre Duhem (1861 1916). The whole theory of electrostatics constitutesa group of abstract ideas and general propositions, formulated
Pierre Duhem
The whole theory of electrostatics constitutes a group of abstract ideas and general propositions, formulated in the clear and concise language of geometry and algebra, and connected with one another by the rules of strict logic. This whole fully satisfies the reason of a French physicist and his taste for clarity, simplicity and order ... Here is a book [by Oliver Lodge] intended to expound a new theory. In it are nothing but strings which move around pulleys, which roll around drums, which go through pearl beads ... toothed wheels which are geared to one another and engage hooks. We thought we were entering the tranquil and neatly ordered abode of reason, but we find ourselves in a factory.

    Duhem, Pierre. (1905).
    Translated by P.P. Wiener as: The Aim and Structure of Physical Theory. Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1954; reprinted New York: Atheneum, 1962, 1977
    Pierre Duhem (1861-1916) was a French physicist and devote Catholic who was the principal exponent of a philosophy of knowledge known as conventionalism . Duhem argued that:
    • An external reality exists, but we are only able to study appearances.
    • We can never know whether one or another metaphysical view is correct.
    • The aim of science is not to explain in the sense of identifying which metaphysical view is correct.
    • Science must abandon the idea that it provides explanations in a deep (metaphysical) sense.
    • The goal of science is to discover regularities in the world, and to express these regularities as "laws".
    • Scientific "laws" should not be regarded as identifying "the way things actually are". Scientific "laws" are simply convenient short-hands.
    • Scientific laws can be conveniently expressed using mathematics. However, the mathematical symbols used in such equations do not necessarily correspond to anything real.

    Wisdom's Children
    The Passion of Pierre Duhem
    by Ernest Brown "Silence is the greatest persecution." Pascal In reality, science as a discipline was stillborn in Greece after Aristotle's death, long before Christianity came on the scene. If any discipline has been "flawed" due to religious reasons, it's the history of science. You see, the information about Buridan and Oresme was suppressed for years at the behest of certain elements of the French government, because it indicated a Christian origin of science. The case was notorious in France in the 50's, (when the info was finally released) and my philosophy advisor (an atheist and Marxist scholar) told me that it was used in French universities of the time as a prime example of government censorship (after I brought it up in class). Here's the story ... Despite the fact that he was one of France's greatest scientists at the turn of the 20th century, if not its greatest, Pierre Duhem's masterwork Le Systeme du Monde Although he was a Roman Catholic, and thus not entirely disposed to regard the Middle Ages as a wasteland, he shared the general belief that one had "to jump well over a thousand years from Archimedes or Ptolemy to Galileo" (Jaki, 178) to do the history of science. In doing a series of articles on the history of the science of statics, he jumped from Archimedes to Stevin and Cardanus. I'll let Jaki continue: But in reading Cardanus, Duhem found a cryptic reference to a certain Jordanus, a name noticed during the previous ten or so years by several historians of science, who, unlike Duhem, had not cared to track down that elusive figure whom Cardanus seemed to credit with an important scientific insight. The task, involving a search for half-a-millennium-old medieval manuscripts and the deciphering of their quasi-cryptic scripts, would have been shunned by all theoretical physicists and by most historians of science, who at that time were still few and far between. Duhem's heroic effort paid a most unexpected dividend. He found that in speaking of the laws of balance Jordanus, who turned out to have flourished around 1320, enunciated the law of virtual velocities which is the cornerstone of general dynamics. (Jaki, 178)

      Duhem, Pierre Maurice Marie [pyer m O r E E Pronunciation Key Duhem, Pierre Maurice Marie (2 vol., 1911) aimed at a generalized, abstract thermodynamics that subsumed classical mechanics. His major philosophical work, (1906; tr. The Aim and Structure of Physical Theory, 1954), depreciates pictorial models in favor of an axiomatic approach, according to which a physical theory is not an explanation, but a system of mathematical propositions that represents experimental laws. As a historian Duhem discovered important currents of medieval thought in physics, cosmology, and astronomy, which he saw as precursors of the 17th-century scientific revolution.

    This paper addresses a central interpretive problem in understanding Pierre Duhem`s philosophy of science. The problem arises because there is textual support for both realist and antirealist readings of his work. I argue that his realist and antirealist claims are different. For Duhem, scientific reasoning leads straight to antirealism. But intuition (reasons of the heart) motivates, without justifying, a kind of realism. I develop this idea to suggest a motivational realist interpretation of Duhem`s philosophy.
