Robert DiSalle – “Émilie Du Châtelet and the Birth of the Philosophy of Physics”


Colloquium, Talk | 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM | Philosophy Department, Western University

Newton’s Principia inspired countless philosophical commentators, but few with the insight and the qualifications— both scientific and philosophical— of Émilie du Châtelet (1706-1751). Her commentaries on Newton’s principles provide one of the first and best examples of the philosophical investigation of scientific ideas.

Speaker: Robert DiSalle (University of Western Ontario)
