Emilie Du Châtelet – Laws of Nature/Laws of Morals

Workshop | all-day | Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists

Émilie Du Châtelet has emerged in the last few decades as a prominent figure of the European Enlightenment. Particularly recent publications as “Emilie du Châtelet between Leibniz and Newton” (2011) revalued her contributions to the main Enlightenment debates on natural philosophy. Nevertheless, Du Châtelet research does not so far fully exhaust her scientific outcome. Her achievements as moral and social philosopher as well as the systematic of her work as a whole still require thorough investigation.
As a leading institution of the études émiliennes, the Teaching and Research Area “History of Women Philosophers and Scientists” at the Philosophy Department of the University of Paderborn (Germany) wishes to contribute to this amplification of Du Châtelet studies. The workshop “Emilie du Châtelet: Laws of Nature – Laws of Morals” brings together Du Châtelet scholars engaged in work beyond the established topics of Du Châtelet research.

The event will be followed by a Graduate Forum on “Women Philosophers in the History of Philosophy“, October 25th 2015 at the University of Paderborn. For the call for papers, please visit our website: www.upb.de/chatelet-2015

Organisation: Prof. Dr. Ruth Hagengruber, Ana Rodrigues
