Descartes and his Network

Summary

The aim of this project is to chart and explore the complex network of patronship and scientific collaboration entertained by the philosopher and scientist René Descartes (1596-1650) during his stay in the Low Countries (1629-1649). Apart from the final synthesis, it can be divided into three smaller projects: 1) a new historico-critical edition of Descartes' correspondence; 2) a study of Descartes' relation to the experimental tradition; 3) a study of one of Descartes' closest Dutch friends, Henricus Reneri (1593-1639).
