Nicolas Drapeau

Researcher on the Origins of Life, Creativity and Foundations of Mathematics

Université de Montréal

Nicolas Drapeau obtained his M.Sc in Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University. He currently works to develop a new philosophy of mathematics that goes beyond the traditional notions of rationalism and empiricism. The philosophy attempts to describe mathematics as a form of Life that evolves just like biological life. He is also a member of the clubs: Life is what!? and Goedel Parallax in Clubhouse.

A short description of his training, he was taught synthetic philosophy of mathematics by Fernando Zalamea, empirical metamathematics by Stephen Wolfram, biological individuality and theories of life by David Krakauer and embodied cognition by Rafael Nuñez, inter alia.
