For the 6th year in a row, the PSL Doctoral College offers PhD students from PSL and the doctoral school CdV, courses aiming at “Raising Awareness on History, Epistemology and Ethics of Science“.

Registration deadline



This module aims to better understand the nature of scientific knowledge, to appreciate their place in our societies, and to discern ethical issues related to both the development of this knowledge and its application.

Such a training, associating philosophical reflection, historical studies and discussions on the ethical issues of scientific knowledge, has become indispensable to all those who will work tomorrow in research or, more generally, in all the professions related to it. It will enable you not only to improve your researcher’s approach but also to develop a civic awareness on these issues, and to be better prepared for dialogue with society.
