SATURN - Histories of ideas and cultures: archives, texts, vocabularies and terminology

Commessa CNR DUS.AD005.005
Activities under project cover all the thematics and the time period which is traditionally studied by the ILIESI research: the history of philosophical and scientific terminology, the implementation of digital archives, seminars and conferences related to history of scientific and philosophical ideas, and their implications on the linguistic and lexical level, including the development of multilingual dictionaries that make possible access to archives and databases. The project takes inspiration both of consolidated activities of the ILIESI (history of ideas as the history of philosophical terminology documented in the texts), as the most recent work on the implementation of digital archives and databases; also it provides for the development of skills related to the publication of editorial series and periodicals both in digital form, as in paper form. The time span of the research is very broad, ranging from studies devoted to the ancient Near East, for the reconstruction in historical comparative perspective of the intellectual world, the study of classical antiquity, with particular attention devoted to practical philosophy and semantics Aristotelian, until the Hellenistic scientific tradition, for which studies are planned on astronomy of Eudoxus of Cnidus, the Renaissance and modern studies in their relationship with the ancient and medieval tradition; the latter a decisive period for European culture, the consequences of which reach up to today. Scientific coordinator: Roberto Palaia
