Über Andrea Bréard

Trained as a mathematician and sinologist in Munich and Shanghai, Andrea Bréard holds PhDs in Philosophy, and Epistemology and the History of Science, from the Technical University Berlin and the Université Paris 7 Denis Diderot, respectively. Broadly speaking, her research interests focus on the history of mathematics and science in China. Her PhD thesis, published in 1999 in German under the title Re-Kreation eines mathematischen Konzeptes im chinesischen Diskurs, was a diachronic study of the concepts and contexts of finite series from the 1st to the 19th century in China. Over the last few years, she has been working on the modernization of statistics in early 20th century China as a case study of complex modes of translation, instigated by political and social change and involving both the adoption of foreign institutional models and the emergence of new areas of knowledge. She has published several articles related to this project and completed a 300 page manuscript, Reform, bureaucratic expansion and production of numbers, for which she was granted the Habilitations-degree in the History of Science by the Technical University Berlin.

More recently, as a fellow of the IKGF (Univ. Erlangen) Andrea Bréard analyzed the interrelation between games of chance, divination and mathematical knowledge as described in "popular" sources in late Imperial China. Using dominoes (literally, "ivory tiles") as the material objects that link these three categories of combinatorial practices, she is particularly interested in how "rationality" evolved historically as a knowledge producing value.

At the Cluster, she is currently working on practices of argumentation in late Imperial Chinese mathematical writings, focusing in particular on inductive and analogical reasoning in number theoretical discourse.
