The site ‘Descartes-agonistes’ has moved here to Word Press. All previous articles are present here in a more clear and accessible fashion, along with a few new items not able to be published on the old website in recent months. For example, my recent review of Alan Chalmers’ One Hundred Years of Pressure, and my invited ‘Focus Section’ piece in Isis June 2019 on explanation in the history of science. The two textbooks previously available on open access on the old site will be published on this site by the beginning of February 2020. Several recent conference and seminar papers will be added soon, including from my lecture series at the Institute of Formal Epistemology, Czech Academy of Science in Prague, last May.
