Our project coordinates a number of courses. Some are offered by our research team. Others are given by invited speakers. Courses are designed as interactive learning devices, helping all those involved (teachers and students) to navigate through the salient points of discussions over the “mathematization of nature” in early modern Europe.

Vanishing bodies and the laws of nature, or how did physics meet mathematics in the seventeenth century. This is an undergaduate course given by Dana Jalobeanu.

Mathematics, natural philosophy and the emergence of science: Reflections upon the “mathematization of nature”. Master course given by Dana Jalobeanu at the Department of Philosophy, Semester I, 2017-1018. Students and early career researchers are most welcome.
