Summer school at the University of Pécs, Hungary

25th-29th June, 2012.



Historical Philosophy of Science



The summer school is intended for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students, and offers lectures and seminars on early modern topics relevant for the philosophy of science. The lecturers and topics are as follows


Prof. Giora Hon (Haifa), Kepler and the Renaissance

Prof. Steffen Ducheyne (Brussels), Descartes and Newton

Dr. Axel Gelfert (Singapore), Hobbes, Locke, Hume

Dr. Gábor Zemplén (Budapest), Goethe and Romanticism

Dr. Falk Wunderlich (Mainz), Kant


The outlines of the choreography: Each day will begin with a guest lecturer's talk, and then a seminar follows based on the talk and pre-circulated material. At the end of the morning session, the participants will organize themselves into small teams focusing on some specific question of the given topic. The teams will be expected to prepare a presentation (to develop a position, or argue against one etc.) Then lunch. In the first half of the afternoon the teams will be preoccupied with preparing their presentations, and in the second half they present their work.


Pécs was Cultural Capital of Europe in 2010. The city has a lively cultural atmosphere. The historic city centre, a newly built concert hall, the Kodály Centre, and the nearby Villány wine region offer several possibilities for extracurricular activities.


No tuition fee. ECTS credits will be granted. Participants will be offered assistance in finding suitable accommodation.
