Teaching Ethics at Early Modern Universities, 1500-1700

Warsaw, Polish Academy of Sciences, 14-15 June 2018

Universities were among the most important institutional contexts in which early modern ethics was taught and developed. But what was the status of ethics at early modern universities, who were the teachers? What did they teach, and how did confessional struggles influence their field?

The conference is organized in cooperation with professors Danilo Facca and Valentina Lepri at the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw and partly financed by professor Lepri’s Marie Curie Fellowship. For more detailed description, see here.
