My name is Andrei RODIN, you may download my CV here

I’m a mathematician, philosopher and historian; my research interests are mainly in (i) the philosophical logic, (ii) the history and philosophy of mathematics and computer science, (iii) in mathematics and computer science education.

I am presently affiliated to:

1) the University of Lorraine in Nancy (France), a temporary (3 years) research position in the Archives Henri-Poincaré (CNRS laboratory of history and philosophy of science, see my page) and Loria (laboratory in Computer Science and its applications); since September 2022 I teach mathematical and epistemological courses in the Ecole Nationale Supérieure en Génie des Systèmes et de l’Innovation (ENSGSI) making part of the University of Lorraine.

Here I co-lead a research project on the Durability of Digital Storages for Archival Purposes funded by the Maison de Sciences de l’Homme de Lorraine

2) laboratory SPHERE, CNRS laboratory at the University Paris-Cité in Paris as an associated researcher;

3) the Smolny Beyond Boarders Initiative, which is an attempt to continue the virtual life of Smolny College of Liberal Arts and Sciences in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, where I was teaching from 2012 to 2022, and which was recently shut down by Russian authorities for political reasons. The Initiative makes part of Open Society University Network and is supported by Gagarin Center for the Study of Civil Society and Human Rights and the Bard College.

Earlier (in 2012-2022) I worked as a researcher in the Institute of Philosophy of Russian Academy of Sciences, and lectured at the Department of Liberal Arts and Sciences of Saint-Petersburg State University.

In mars 2022 I  moved to France with my family because of our political disagreement with the military invasion of Russian Army into Ukraine started on February 24, 2022. On that very date I signed a collective Open Letter of Russian academics protesting against the military aggression.  By January 2023 this letter was signed by 8489 people.

In June 2022 I resigned from all academic positions in Russia.

The department of Liberal Arts and Sciences of Saint-Petersburg State University aka Smolny College has been founded in 1999 as a joint educational program with Bard College in N.Y. (US). This cooperation continued until 2021 when Bard College was declared “undesirable” by Russian authorities. This broke the international cooperation and essentially dismantled Smolny as we knew it (albeit the department still exists). There is no mentioning of Bard College on today’s department site.

I am a member of the Council of Russian Society for History and Philosophy of Science;

I am a member of Board of Directors of Logica Universalis Association
