Éric Brian is a historian of science and a sociologist. He studies the uncertainty and regularity of social phenomena, and in particular, how scientists have caught and conceived them as objects of mathematics or social and economic sciences.

He is currently senior professor at EHESS (École des hautes études en sciences sociales, Paris, France). Since 1995, he has been the editor of the Revue de synthèse today published at Brill Publishers (Paris). Between 1997 and 2018, he taught at the University of Vienna (Austria).
