The first issue (Fall 2012) of the Journal of Early Modern Studies is now published

A well known metaphor of the early European modernity and an important instrument in the understanding of seventeenth-century thought, the “Republic of Letters” was, in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, primarily a label for new projects of intellectual and scientific association. Various models for the Republic of Letters have been investigated and described as closed circles or open networks, shaped around a variety of elements: scientific societies, intellectual networks, formal or informal circles of intellectuals, proponents of the new and old philosophies. What all such models had in common was a an ideal of shaping communities around a moral, intellectual and sometimes a religious project understood as a reformation of the (whole) human being.


This special issue of the Journal of Early Modern Studies brought together articles devoted to the investigation of such models of early modern communities governed by the ideal of the Republic of Letters. The issue selected papers dedicated to the exploration of various ways of disseminating and communicating knowledge within the Republic of Letters, with a special focus on the exchanges between the East and the West of Europe.

Organizatori locali:

Sorana Corneanu, Lector în Anglistică, PhD (Universitatea din Bucureşti) şi membru ISIH

Dana Jalobeanu, Lector în Filosofie, PhD (Universitatea din Bucureşti) şi secretar general ISIH

Tema generală:

Conferinţa abordează concepţiile istorice privitoare la interacţiunea dintre cunoaştere şi emoţii, ori dintre viaţa cognitivă şi cea afectivă a indivizilor şi comunităţilor. Fie că este vorba despre dobândirea şi transmiterea cunoaşterii, despre agregarea şi reconfigurarea comunităţilor, despre relaţia individului cu sine, cu alţii ori cu divinitatea, despre educaţie şi metode pedagogice, despre expresia şi receptarea artistică, sau despre concepţia valorilor şi principiilor morale, politice şi juridice care stau la baza societăţilor – ideea după care raţiunea şi emoţiile se plasează în tabere diferite sau chiar opuse se dovedeşte insustenabilă. Noi cercetări în domeniile ştiinţei cognitive, antropologiei culturale, filosofiei morale ori teoriei literaturii şi artelor au început să depăşească această idee tradiţională şi să pună în lumină complexitatea vieţii cognitiv-afective a fiinţei umane. Istoricii ideilor sunt în măsură să aducă un aport important acestei direcţii de cercetare, prin semnalarea formelor pe care tema le-a primit în istoria gândirii şi a practicilor culturale. Istoria se poate dovedi o bogată resursă de reflecţie şi intuiţii pentru preocupările actuale. Conferinţa de la Bucureşti se doreşte a fi un forum pentru o astfel de reflecţie.
