Reviewing the history and work of the Calculators
The Calculators were a group of scholars in the early 14th century, linked to the tradition of sophismata. Most logical techniques used by them were applied to the discussion of mathematical and physical issues – mainly aimed at challenging and revising parts of the Aristotelian physics. The EU-funded project CALCULATORES aims to review our knowledge of the Calculators’ tradition in the academic and cultural context. The project combines many disciplines into investigating authors that have played an important role in the history of philosophy and science. Particular emphasis will be placed on uncovering philosophical issues concerning the nature of modalities and the role that thought experiments play in philosophical and scientific methodology.
