Abstract : The plural -philosophie des sciences- which has prevailed in the French language may be due to Auguste Comte-s longstanding influence, since he strongly advocated a regional epistemology. The result is that chemistry has not been totally neglected. As I have argued elsewhere, chemistry helped shape the French tradition, especially in what can be labeled its -historical turn- and its focus on theories of matter.
