Language and Languages in Renaissance Philosophy

Posted By David A. Lines, Wednesday, May 3, 2017

What language should philosophy speak? And, within a particular language, what models should it follow, and what registers should it adopt? These kinds of questions were key to numerous Renaissance philosophical discussions. Especially in Italy, France, and Spain they gave rise to spirited debates about which kind of Latin was suitable for discussing philosophy, and whether the vernacular languages were appropriate for discussing concepts for which scholastic Latin had long developed a technical vocabulary. This panel will consider this issue, whenever possible in a comparative perspective. 

Please send a 200 word abstract, a list of key words, and a brief CV (no more than 300 words) in a single Word document to the discipline representative for Philosophy, David Lines ( by Friday, 26 May 2017. See guidelines for CVs on the RSA’s annual meeting page.
