Andrea Reichenberger – “On God and Formal Logic”
Talk | 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM | Verein für Herforder Geschichte e.V
The Verein für Herforder Geschichte e.V., in cooperation with the VHS Herford, cordially invites you to Dr. Andrea Reichenberger’s talk “On God and Formal Logic” on Elisabeth of Herford’s correspondence with the philosophers of her time.
Elisabeth, Princess of Herford (1618-1680), was a prominent figure in her time as the daughter of the Palatine Elector and Bohemian Winter King Frederick V, and granddaughter of the English King James I. René Descartes, with whom Elisabeth had a close friendship, did not accidentally dedicate his work to her. Elisabeth also had close contacts with Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, Anna Maria van Schurman and other scholars.
In 2018 Elisabeth von der Pfalz would have celebrate her 400th birthday. This talk will also stimulate the activities planned in Herford.
Speaker: Andrea Reichenberger, Dr. phil, is a researcher at the Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists at the University of Paderborn. Her research focuses on women’s research in the history of logic, mathematics and physics.
