Why do people become researchers? How do the careers of those who devote their lives to understanding the world take shape? What are they looking for, and why?

This collection of podcasts entitled "Matières Premières" opens the doors to their intimacy: their youth, their journey, their choices, their encounters. And with their stories, we want to bring the worlds of citizens closer to those of research in the field of human and social sciences.

For this first episode, discover the journey of Paolo Mancosu. After undergraduate studies in philosophy at the Catholic University of Milan, he received his doctoral thesis in mathematical logic from Stanford in 1989. In 1992, he became an assistant professor in the philosophy department at Yale University, and then he joined the philosophy department at the University of California, Berkeley, where he has been ever since. Since 2015, he has been the Willis S. and Marion Slusser Professor of Philosophy. In addition, he published three books on the publication history of Doctor Zhivago which received international praise.
