Optional course “Reading Nature With Aristotle”
This is an optional course with credits, primarily intended for Master students (History and Philosophy of Science), but also open to PhD students, postdocs, and members of the Institute for Research in the Humanities. It is divided into seminars and lectures, and it runs from October 12 till November 2 (six classes of four hours each). The course focuses on the Aristotelian science of natural problems, which continues to be a most neglected area of Peripatetic thought despite having been the bedrock of influential debates up to the Enlightenment. It provides a fresh history of one philosophical genre, the problems, and it asks what does it mean to do philosophy within the confines of such epistemic vehicle. This is an excellent opportunity for a first encounter with Aristotle.
Lecturer: Stefano Gulizia (CUNY / IRH-ICUB Visiting Professor)
