A two-day conference which will explore the significance of the notion of ‘ingenium’ for Descartes and his circle, and place it in the context of contemporary pedagogy, erudition, philosophy, mathematics, and music. This event is part of the research project, Genius Before Romanticism: Ingenuity in Early Modern Art and Science, a five-year ERC funded project based at CRASSH.
Further information about the conference programme, speakers’ biographies, abstracts to follow.
