Jean-Pierre Dupuy, born February 20, 1941, is a French engineer and philosopher.

Biography[edit]

Dupuy attended the Ecole polytechnique, where he graduated in 1965 and attended the Ecole des Mines. He was a professor of French and a researcher at the Center for the Study of Language and Information (CSLI) of Stanford University, California.[1] He also taught social and political philosophy and the ethics of science and technology until 2006 at the École Polytechnique.

He founded the center of cognitive sciences and epistemology of the Ecole polytechnique (CREA) in 1982 with Jean-Marie Domenach on the basis of preliminary reflections by Jean Ullmo. This center became a mixed research unit in 1987. From the outset, its vocation was two-fold and involved both modeling in human sciences (models of self-organization of complex systems Cognitive, economic and social) than the philosophy of science and, in particular, the epistemology of cognitive sciences.
