Seven years from today

September 14, 2016 will mark the 100th anniversary of the death of Pierre Duhem.

By that date, perhaps more people know who Pierre Duhem is, and perhaps some brilliant and enthusiastic scholar will have translated the French of ten volumes of his Système du monde, and the three of his Etudes sur Léonard de Vinci, if not all of his works... And perhaps there will be an international conference to discuss the history of science.

Obviously there's a lot to do. If you want to help, you might think about forming your own chapter of the Duhem Society - or at least get copies of some of his books, or books about him.

Meanwhile we shall pray for the repose of his soul, and also that God will enlighten more scientists and more philosophers to maintain the unity of faith and science as Duhem did.
