First we are describing some contemporary forms of scientific reductionism. Then we explain the arguments used by Maurice Blondel to criticize this reductionism and we show why these arguments are still relevant today. Finally, we study some limits of the Blondelian critics coming from his conventionalist philosophy of science (influenced by Duhem) and from his conception conception of the biological evolution.
