(PS) Substance, Space and Time in Early Modern Philosophy

Dozent:innen: Serena Lander
Kurzname: PS Substance
Kurs-Nr.: 05.127.050
Kurstyp: Proseminar

Inhalt

Is there a fundamental construction of the universe? Is the mind a different substance to the body? Are there essential objects which make up other objects? Or is it just turtles all the way down?

This Proseminar course will look at the answers to these questions given in the Early Modern period.

Around the philosophical period of the Enlightenment, philosophers were keen to explain the ultimate grounds of the universe. During the time of Newton’s physics, a rich and varied conversation around the structure of reality came to light. However, as we will see, there is broad disagreement about what this underlying nature is, and where human minds, causal efficacy and God should fit into our metaphysics.

We will look at a variety of philosophers such as Spinoza, Leibniz, Kant and Hume, as well as lesser-known influences such as the female philiosopher, Lady Anne Conway.
