CfP: Special issue Society and Politics - Early Modern Intellectual Networks

Invited editor: Ovidiu Babeș
Intellectual interactions played a major role in shaping modern thought. There are many ways in which the ambition of the advancement of knowledge was carried out in a collaborative way by the prominent Early Modern figures. Theoretical interactions such as written correspondence facilitated the exchange of learning and influenced philosophical ideas arisen in the seventeenth century. This was doubled by an increasing interest in the process of disseminating knowledge that engaged intelligencers and philosophers with different backgrounds and sometimes interested in quite different projects. Such examples are the circles emerged around the figures of Mersenne, Hartlib, or Oldenburg. How do the two interact and in what ways theoretical and practical concerns mingled in the new philosophy?
This issue of Societate și Politică (Society and Politics) aims at exploring the relation between these intellectual networks and the advancement of knowledge in any branch of early modern philosophical studies.
Societate și Politică welcomes research coming from different fields (history of philosophy, history and philosophy of science, history and philosophy of mathematics, etc.) and strongly encourages cross-disciplinary approaches.
Societate și Politică is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal published by Vasile Goldiș Western University of Arad, Romania. See http://uvvg.ro/socpol/.
