History and Philosophy of Physics

Taking the opportunity of a new SPS section devoted to history of physics, we are starting a series of regular contributions featuring various aspects of the history of our discipline. We want to address as much the evolution of research, the shaping of its underlying ideas and the personal trajectories of its protagonists, as the institutional and social changes that exerted influence on physics and physicists in Switzerland and abroad.
