ABOUT

The journal Almagest considers the history of science both as a history of ideas and as an activity that takes place in institutional and social context. In discussing the history of scientific ideas, the journal addresses the philosophical assumptions underpinning the ideas as well as the scientific developments themselves; it also addresses the influence of the historical context on these ideas.
One of the defining features of the journal’s approach to the history of science is the belief that the history of scientific ideas, of research priorities, of conceptualizations of nature, and of the various external factors that are associated with scientific discoveries are deeply related to History, generally construed, and to cultural and socio-economic parameters. Following this approach, the journal invites papers on the history of scientific ideas in specific regions or related to a specific cultural context (for example, papers on science and religion). It also invites papers on the relations of scientific ideas to the material civilization, in particular to scientific instruments.
It is a firm belief of the editorial board that history of science can contribute substantially to the scientific education of both students and the general public, especially at a time when debates over "intelligent design" are raising major questions not only over what counts as science but also on what ought to be available to students in their school curricula. The journal, therefore, invites also papers on the utilization of history of science in science education.

Le journal Almagest envisage l’histoire de la science en tant qu’histoire des idées et activité se déroulant dans un contexte institutionnel et social. En considérant l’histoire des idées scientifiques, le journal aborde les suppositions philosophiques à l’origine de ces idées ainsi que les développements scientifiques en eux-mêmes ; il traite également de l’influence du contexte historique sur ces idées. L’une des principales caractéristiques de la manière dont le journal aborde l’histoire de la science est la conviction que l’histoire des idées scientifiques, des priorités de recherche, des conceptualisations de la nature et des différents facteurs externes concernant les découvertes scientifiques est profondément liée à l’Histoire, telle qu’elle est généralement interprétée, ainsi qu’aux paramètres culturels et socioéconomiques. Le journal publie également des articles sur les relations entre les idées scientifiques et la civilisation matérielle, en particulier les instruments scientifiques et l’utilisation de l’histoire de la science dans l’éducation scientifique.
