Steno and the Philosophers

12 feb 2015 09:00 - 13 feb 2015 18:00

Institut d’études avancées de Paris, 17 quai d'Anjou, 75004 Paris

Colloque international organisé par Mogens Laerke (CR1-HDR, CNRS, UMR 5037, ENS Lyon) et Raphaële Andrault (CR2, CNRS, UMR 5037, ENS Lyon) en partenariat avec l'IEA de Paris.

Résumé

The Danish scientist and theologian Nicolas Steno (1638-1686) was a brilliant scientist and influential theologian, but also as an important natural philosopher who played a pivotal, albeit ambivalent, role in the intellectual networks in the late seventeenth century. Focusing on Steno’s importance for seventeenth century philosophy, this international conference questions the intricate relations between philosophy, theology and the emerging sciences (medicine and geology in particular) in the early modern Republic of Letters through the biographical prism of one of its most fascinating members.
