Descartes and Ingenium

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.

About Jose Ramon Marcaida

I’m a historian of science interested in the history of early modern Iberian science and its connection with Renaissance and Baroque visual culture. More generally, I’m interested in the relation between texts, images and things across the Humanities.
