La Universitat de Barcelona estrena la sèrie de divulgació audiovisual «Desxifrant la taula periòdica»

L'Assemblea General de les Nacions Unides ha proclamat el 2019 Any Internacional de la Taula Periòdica dels Elements Químics. Tot just enguany es compleixen 150 anys que Dmitri Mendeléiev va fer història en aconseguir posar ordre en els elements químics. Allò va suposar un pas imprescindible per a l'avenç de la química. El que probablement no hauria imaginat mai és que la seva troballa seria tan popular i donaria tant de joc fora de l'àmbit estricte d'aquesta ciència. Amb motiu d'aquesta efemèride, la Universitat de Barcelona presenta «Desxifrant la taula periòdica», la nova sèrie de divulgació audiovisual que s'estrena avui. L'objectiu, descobrir al públic que la taula periòdica és molt més que un exercici memorístic que s'aprèn a l'escola, i que la seva influència no es limita a la química, sinó que va més enllà i arriba a altres disciplines com poden ser les belles arts, la filosofia o la filologia. Per tenir aquesta visió transve

CFP: How Quantum Mechanics Changed Philosophy

Bergische Universität Wuppertal, January 16-17, 2020 The aim of this workshop is to explore the implications of quantum mechanics for philosophy, both historically and in contemporary debates. Quantum mechanics is generally regarded as a fundamental theory of nature, and at the same time as problematic to understand. The particular issues raised by quantum mechanics have had repercussions for the general understanding of science as well as of the nature of reality. Many philosophers of natural science have been particularly interested in quantum mechanics - reflections on quantum mechanics play a role in the philosophical work of e.g. Reichenbach, Cassirer, Popper, Kuhn, Feyerabend, Putnam, Van Fraassen and Cartwright. At the same time, it has been argued that in certain areas of philosophy, quantum mechanics is unjustifiably ignored. The workshop aims to explore the roles of reflections on quantum mechanics in wider philosophical debates, from the early 20 th century until t

CfP: Universals' Locales workshop, deadline Friday

In theory, the ideas and methods of modern theoretical and mathematical sciences are born universal, ungoverned by researchers' locales and unconstrained by geopolitical borders. In practice, material and political constraints, linguistic and national barriers, and the manifold idiosyncrasies of individual research settings have historically divided theoretical and mathematical scholars more than their putatively placeless quarry has united them. Supported by the British Academy, this workshop brings together a network of early career scholars with a collection of senior mentors to attempt to articulate and engage the distinctive challenges of studying the international and global history and sociology of subjects whose universal ideals have only relatively recently corresponded to globe-crossing institutions and research communities. We aim to encourage to new collaborations and approaches to vital questions in the history and sociology of science, with implications for those c

Just published: Voltaire, Notes et écrits marginaux conservés hors de la Bibliothèque nationale de Russie

Complete works of Voltaire , vol.145 Voltaire,  Notes et écrits marginaux conservés hors de la Bibliothèque nationale de Russie Complément au Corpus des notes marginales de Voltaire Sous la direction de Gillian Pink Oxford, Voltaire Foundation, 2019 ISBN 978-0-7294-0890-5 This volume is a complement to the Corpus des notes marginales s ubseries, reproducing marginal notes by Voltaire found in works outside of his personal library in both printed books and manuscripts. Some of the texts were annotated by Voltaire not for his own use but for friends, acquaintances and correspondents. The volume, with its 29 illustrations, therefore offers a rare glimpse of marginalia that was intended to help his contemporaries to improve their own writing, but also to impress a certain image of Voltaire himself upon the recipients of the annotated works. A general introduction to the series provides a fascinating portrait of Voltaire as a reader and explains the particular
