Intelligibility of the 17th-18th Centuries

Date:Tuesday, March 24, 2015 - 19:00

Location: Southern Cross Grill, 404 Queen Street, Ottawa, ON.


Mathematisation of Nature as the New Scientific Intelligibility of the 17th-18th Centuries

This talk will be the third presentation in the new series 
The Lantern: lectures in Philosophy, Theology, Art and Science
Anna Djintcharadze, professor of theology at Dominican University College, 
will be the main speaker. 

This lecture will explore the major methodological shifts in astronomy and physics 
with the advent of modern science, while trying to understand whether the traditional 
Aristotelian/Thomistic notions of essence, accident and causality still have a place 
within this new scientific paradigm. 

The Lantern series is meant for anyone with an interest in topics at the intersection 
of philosophy, theology, art and science. Held in an informal atmosphere, 
the events are meant to generate discussion on these meaningful topics; 
as a result, much time will be dedicated after the talk to answering questions 
and engaging in discussion. Come join us for a friendly and stimulating evening!
