Salle Ladrière, Collège Mercier, Place Cardinal Mercier, 14, LLN

Un colloque du centre De Wulf-Mansion, organisé par Claus A. Andersen et le prof. Jacob Schmutz

Description :

The conference brings together scholars working on different strands of Late-Medieval and Early-Modern thought. Its broader focus is on the general variety of distinctions (formal, modal, rational, real, etc.) throughout this period’s metaphysics. Special attention will be paid to the Scotist tradition where the genre of Formalist treatises flourished, a literature that had Scotist identity and distinction theory as its subject matter. The conference explores this special kind of literature and demonstrates the centrality of its doctrines in various philosophical and theological contexts from the fourteenth to the seventeenth century.

The conference is a part of the MSCA project FORMALITAS funded by the European Union
