Masterclass honouring the 39th Erasmus Birthday Lecture
9 November 2018 @ 12:00 - 14:15
Yasmin Haskell (Univ. of Bristol): Passions for and of Learning in the Early Modern Period
How were the emotions (/passions) harnessed in education and science in the early modern period and which emotions or temperaments were especially associated with scholars and scientists? How did the emotional experience of the schoolchild/ scholar/scientist differ from that of earlier times, and how were the emotions perceived in different places and contexts to affect, hinder, or further learning or intellectual work?
Participants in this masterclass are invited to explore the emotions in the early modern classroom, academy, and Republic of Letters. From the genial melancholy of Marsilio Ficino to the melancholy hypochondria of the late Renaissance, from the vices of the learned lamented in the German-speaking lands to the occupational hazards of learning deplored by physician Samuel Tissot in his inaugural professorial address at the University of Lausanne, on the ‘Health of Scholars’. Topics might include curiosity, bibliomania, zeal for travel, ambition, pride, anger, excessive admiration for authorities… and sloth!
