Émilie Du Châtelet’s Foundations of Physics

Conference | 6:30 PM - 4:30 PM | Department of Philosophy, University of Notre Dame

In 2009, Isabelle Bour and Judith P. Zinsser published a partial translation of Émilie Du Châtelet’s Foundations of Physics. Since 2014, faculty and students at the University of Notre Dame have worked to complete the translation (see www.kbrading.org/du-chatelet). This conference celebrates the completion of the project.

The conference will feature talks, presentations, and discussions of the text, its philosophical and historical context and significance, and ways of incorporating Du Châtelet’s philosophy into undergraduate teaching.

Participants include: Katherine Brading, Karen Detlefsen, Lisa Downing, Jamee Elder, Ashton Green, Ruth Hagengruber, John Hanson, Sarah Hutton, Andrew Janiak, Marcy Lascano, Christia Mercer, Lauren Montes, Andrea Reichenberger, Annelise Rey, Anne Seul, Phil Sloan, George Smith, Monica Solomon, Marius Stan, Aaron Wells and Judith P. Zinsser.
