CFP – SIEPM Colloquium Proposal 2015: Tolerance and Concepts of Otherness in Medieval Philosophy

September 9-12 2015, Maynooth University, Ireland Organized by Dr Michael W. Dunne & Dr Susan Gottlöber Keynote Speakers Professor David Luscombe (Sheffield) Professor Roberto Hofmeister Pich (Porto Alegre) Description Tolerance (and of course intolerance) and identity play key roles in our interaction with the world and the other. In fact, due to recent social and political developments, the focus of Philosophy has shifted more and more towards the problem of both inter–religious and inter–cultural dialogue and its limitations. An extremely fruitful source in order to gain a more precise understanding of the questions and problems that arise in the encounter with otherness are the reflections developed by philosophers in the Middle Ages within their respective religious and cultural contexts. This colloquium aims to examine the development of the perception of the other within the different philosophical, religious and cultural traditions by considering not only the theological background but also the philosophical presuppositions of the concepts which then were used to develop various apologetic writings and theological treatises in the late Middle Ages and Early Modern era that dealt with the questions of cultural and religious difference. The organisers invite papers exploring (but not restricted to) the following topics: The Christian perspective on the other which includes both perceptions of otherness as well as dealings with otherness (e.g. tolerance and intolerance). In the Early Middle Ages this includes the dealings with and perception of paganism and the Christian “other”, while later there is the additional focus on the relationship with Islam. This is a huge topic and would thus need to be divided into subsections as it includes topic such...

Métaphysique et cosmologie médiévales. Héritages philosophiques du Livre des causes

Une école d’été sera organisée du 15 au 20 septembre à Dijon, dans le cadre du projet « LIBER » financé par l’Agence nationale de la recherche (ANR-13- PDOC-0018-01) en partenariat avec le Laboratoire d’études sur les monothéismes (UMR 8584, EPHE-CNRS), l’École Pratique des Hautes Études (Paris) et la Bibliothèque municipale de Dijon. Le thème: « Métaphysique et cosmologie médiévales. Héritages philosophiques du Livre des causes ». Le Livre des causes représente à lui seul la convergence des trois traditions philosophiques (arabe, juive, latine) qui coexistaient dans l’Europe médiévale et qui étaient fortement dépendantes de la tradition grecque. Le Livre des causes a été composé en arabe à Bagdad au IXe siècle à partir des traductions arabes de Proclus et Plotin, et traduit en hébreu et en latin à la fin du XIIe siècle. Les latins l’ont considéré comme un livre de métaphysique et l’ont attribué à Aristote. Après la traduction latine (en 1268) des Eléments de théologie, Thomas d’Aquin montre sa dépendance envers Proclus. Malgré cela, l’ouvrage a été copié, enseigné, commenté, glosé dans pratiquement tous les milieux intellectuels du XIIIe au XVIe siècle, de Paris à Oxford, de Cologne à Cracovie, de Prague à Erfurt, de Naples à Uppsala. Ainsi, dans l’histoire de la rationalité occidentale, le Livre de causes a été la grande source philosophique de la transmission du néoplatonisme, comme le Ps.-Denys l’Aréopagite en a été la source théologique. En suivant les divers itinéraires du Livre des causes et de ses sources, les interventions de l’école d’été mettront en évidence plusieurs aspects de la richesse conceptuelle que l’opuscule hérite de la philosophie gréco-arabe et lègue...
