ASEMP 2019 - Transformations in Early Modern Philosophy

Australasian Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy 2019

Brisbane, November 25th - 27th, 2019

The early modern period in the history of philosophy was a period of radical transformation – in philosophy, science, politics and religion, and in our relationship to nature and to each other. The focus of this conference is on those early modern concepts, theories, or figures that transformed standard ways of thinking in the period, or that changed the form and nature of philosophy itself.

The panel themes are (1) Women and Power; (2) Metaphysics, Science and Religion; and (3) State and Secularism. A variety of other topics are addressed in individual presentations by an international contingent of specialists in early modern philosophy.

The Australasian Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy, 2019, is sponsored by the Australian Research Council, the University of Queensland School of Historical and Philosophical Inquiry, the University of Queensland Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, and the Philosophy Department of the University of California, Los Angeles.

There is no registration fee for the conference.

The University of Queensland is delighted to host the second Australasian Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy (ASEMP), in Brisbane, Australia, from November 25th to 27th, 2019.
