Jil Muller - New Voices Research Profile

During my research on the idea of original sin in the works of Montaigne and Descartes, I even focused on Elisabeth of Bohemia and especially on her conception of passions and her interest in medical issues. Her great knowledge of medicine and of the functioning of the human body enabled her to play a major role in the correspondence with René Descartes. In a near futur, I will collaborate, at the Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists, in the project of a new edition of Émilie du Châtelet’s Institutions de physique.
