Conference: Teaching the New Science
the role of Academia during the Scientific Revolution
15-17 June 2017, Faculty of Philosophy, Oude Boteringestraat 52 Groningen
The new scientific world view emerged during the seventeenth century has been often considered as radically opposed to the Aristotelian-Scholastic philosophy that dominated universities at the time.

Textbooks and university courses are privileged laboratories to study the dissemination of ideas, the emergences of new methods, the evolution of controversies and the shaping of new scientific paradigms.
This conference aims to bring together scholars working on different facets of the history and circulation of scientific ideas within and around the seventeenth and eighteenth century academic milieu.
