Aristotelian Natural Philosophy in the Early Modern Period (Brussels, 23-24/05/2013)

Early modern philosophers liked to debate about Aristotle just as much as medieval scholars. They had different sources to fuel their discussions:
from the humanist preoccupation with a pristine Aristotle and a purification of a corpus perceived as corrupted to the very medieval doctors that others sought to forget. This conference aims at reconstructing the various ways in which Aristotle's natural philosophical books were read and used to nourish various philosophical agendas.
