In the last decades the inquiry into the relation between early modern and Enlightenment philosophy and other scientific disciplines proved particularly productive. In recent years this field of study has received particular attention in Turin through the work of students and scholars.
This seminar offers the possibility to discuss philosophical and related topics from the perspective of an interdisciplinary approach to modern and Enlightenment history.
We welcome proposals of talks from anybody who wishes to share his/her expertise and foster the discussion.
The initiative is co-organized by Charles T. Wolfe and Sebastiano Gino.
