« Physique et métaphysique : Quels enjeux dans la constitution des cartésianismes et des anti-cartésianismes ? » (Lyon, 19-20 mars 2013)

Colloque organisé par l’ANR « ANTHROPOS », avec le soutien du CERPHI, UMR 5037 et de Mathesis, CIRPHLES, USR 3308, et l’appui de l’ESEMP. C’est un lieu commun que Descartes a modifié l’acception des termes « physique » et «métaphysique », mais aussi qu’il a inversé l’ordre dans lequel ces disciplines devaient être abordées. Le détail de cette modification et l’histoire de cette inversion peuvent cependant aujourd’hui être l’objet d’une contextualisation fine. Lors des deux colloques qui seront successivement organisés sur cette question, à l’ENS-Lyon (mars 2013) puis à l’ENS-Paris (octobre 2013), nous nous proposons conséquemment d’interroger ce lieu commun à nouveaux frais.

It will aim not only at mapping the many philosophical controversies of the early modern period, but as well at making explicit the different methodological approaches that can be used to analyse controversies and at evaluating the different explanatory merits of those methodological approaches.
