Institut Jean Nicod


The Jean Nicod Institute (IJN) is a CNRS research center based in Paris, France. Founded in 2000, its name commemorates the French philosopher and logician Jean Nicod (1893-1924). At present, the Institute is co-hosted by the École Normale Supérieure and the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales. Research carried by its members has a strongly interdisciplinary profile, at the interface between philosophy, cognitive science, and the social sciences. Although most members of the Institute are philosophers, the issues addressed are not purely conceptual and have a strong empirical component. For several years, members of the Institute have led research projects in collaboration with cognitive and developmental psychologists, neuropsychologists and cognitive neuroscientists.

IJN was the first French institution (and among the first in Europe) in the field of the social sciences to adopt an Open Access policy with respect to its scientific production, providing free and unconstrained access to the totality of its publications. (read more...)

Every year, IJN hosts the Jean Nicod Prize and Lectures, awarded to a leading philosopher of mind or philosophically oriented cognitive scientist.

IJN is also the host of the Review of Philosophy and Psychology, a peer-reviewed journal focusing on foundational issues in current cognitive science.
