Quantifying Aristotle.
The Impact, Spread and Decline of the Calculatores Tradition
23-25 May, 2018

Idea and Motivation

quantifying_aristotle_poster_sOur conference will assemble a group of renowned scholars to explore one of the more significant features of the calculatores tradition, namely the way in which it transformed the understanding of Aristotle through its logic-mathematical approach. In addition to focusing on particular texts, authors and questions, we intend above all to consider the diffusion of this intellectual tradition, which for two-hundred years was a determining factor in several scientific and philosophical fields.

The conference is organized by the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy in collaboration with the Chair of History of Science.
