Medieval Logic, Metaphysics, and Science: Texts and Problems

С 20 октября по 17 ноября 2021 года пройдет международный коллоквиум "Medieval Logic, Metaphysics, and Science: Texts and Problems", организованный кафедрой истории зарубежной философии совместно с Радбаудским университетом.

Lomonosov Moscow State University - Radboud University Joint Colloquium

The Colloquium intends to bring together researchers working on different medieval philosophical traditions (Latin, Byzantine, Arabic, Hebrew, Russian, etc.) and particularly exploring matters of logic, ontology, epistemology and scientific thought broadly construed. In particular, the Colloquium aims to showcase the recent scholarship on medieval philosophy that implements a twofold approach, i.e. addressing theoretical philosophical problems in their past iterations and doing so on a rigorous textual basis. 

Research on the plethora of still understudied or practically unknown medieval philosophical texts is growing fast. This whole body of increasingly available research impacts the understanding of traditionally more studied authors, texts and doctrines, now contextualised in a larger and more nuanced framework.

Therefore, throughout the Colloquium, we intend to bring together those scholars who are contributing to changing and expanding the picture of medieval philosophy by discovering, editing, interpreting or re-interpreting both well-known and lesser-known texts that have, nonetheless, played an important role in the history of ideas.
