In the second part of 2015 our main activity at the research seminar was working on the Translation project 2, the selection of fragments for the three volumes of philosophical cosmology (fundamental texts). We have read and investigated texts selected for volume 1 (Philosophical cosmology in the Renaissance) and volume 2 (Cosmology in Early Modern Europe), ranging from mid sixteenth century mixed mathematics and treatises on the sphere to late seventeenth century and the beginning of the eighteenth century.
In November 2015, volume I (Philosophical cosmology in the Renaissance) has been submitted to the publisher. For a short summary of volume I see here. Volume I is co-edited by Dana Jalobeanu and Doina-Cristina Rusu.
Forthcoming publications in this series include:
- Mihnea Dobre, ed. Cosmologie filosofică. Texte fundamentale: Vol. II Cosmologia de la Descartes la Newton XVII-XVIII, Editura Universității din București, 2017.
- Dana Jalobeanu, Mihnea Dobre eds., Cosmologie filosofică. Texte fundaemntale : Vol. III Cosmologia de la Newton la Kant.
