Disseminations and Discussions

During the next four months, I will be giving a research seminar on the dissemination of Arabic-into-Latin texts for the Aquinas and ‘the Arabs’ International Working Group. It will be quite an experience for me: the opportunity of present my new research to such a brilliant group is just priceless. Moreover, the seminar will be recorded and uploaded on Youtube; I will link the videos in this page and anyone who has anything to ask or needs any clarification could write me, and I’ll be more than glad to answer.

The seminar – title: The Penetration of Arabic Philosophy into the Latin Philosophical Tradition (1162-1215) – is articulated into four lectures, one per month, following the historical development of the main topic I will discuss, i.e., the cross-cultural dissemination of knowledge between the end of the twelfth and the beginning of the thirteenth century:

  • First meeting (January 2017): The Toledan Translation Movement
  • Second meeting (February 2017): Dominicus Gundissalinus: Metaphysics and Cosmology
  • Third meeting (March 2017): Dominicus Gundissalinus: Psychology and Epistemology
  • Fourth meeting (April 2017): From Toledo to Paris and Oxford
