Caroline Angleraux
Doctor of Philosophy in Biology

Caroline Angleraux has just defended her PhD in philosophy and history of the life sciences, completed at the Institut d’Histoire et de Philosophie des Sciences et des Techniques (Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne) and at the University of Padua, Italy. She works on the concept of simplicity conveyed by the Leibnizian monad and the Haeckelian moneron, and also works on the relationship between this simplicity and the concept of the cell in biology. She aims to uncover how a metaphysical discourse was transformed into the speculative biology that played a major part in the conceptual genealogy of the cell, and how it enlightens our contemporary concept of the cell.
