Overview

The lectures of the conference will investigate the “chicken-and-egg” question that often recurred at the Budapest meeting: what drives the large-scale conceptual changes we discussed there: changing semantical or metaphysical intuitions, or the reinterpretation of theological principles? The answer is probably the interaction of these principles in their various applications; but how does this happen and why? The lectures seeking the answers to such questions in concrete historical cases will serve as the material for volume 2 of the Proceedings of SEHI.

 

About the SEHI

The Society for the European History of Ideas (SEHI, pronounced SEE-high) is a network of scholars from all continents studying the European history of ideas. In particular, we focus on those incremental changes which, in the longue durée, result in paradigmatic metamorphoses in conceptual schemes, mentalities and intellectual habits in theology, philosophy, science, mathematics, as well as in the arts, literature, and music. Within this broad purview, most members of SEHI are particularly interested in the paradigmatic changes that have characterised the transition from the Middle Ages to modernity.
