The development of a freshman seminar at Carleton College that focuses on what it means to live well and whether the structure of the universe supports human efforts to live well.

This project will develop a new freshman seminar, Cosmos or Chaos: Views of the World, Views of the Good Life, which addresses the question of the good life -- what does it mean to live well? -- by considering two prior questions: 1) What is the fundamental character of the world? and 2) What are the implications of this character for human beings? The importance of one's view of the fundamental character of the universe and of the good life, while not self-evident, has been addressed with great intellectual, moral, poetic, and spiritual power by thinkers throughout history. This course will consider some key visions of the character of the world and of how to live a good life. Students enrolled in the course will read, discuss, and write extensively about Homer, Sophocles, the Biblical books of Genesis and Exodus, Plato and Aristotle, the Gospel of Matthew and Augustine's Confessions, Niccolo Machiavelli, Francis Bacon, Nietzsche, Walker Percy, Hans Jonas, and Ken Wilber.

Study will concentrate on the emergence of the English essay as a distinct prose genre during the later 16th and earlier 17th centuries following the publication of Montaigne's Essais in France. Particular attention will be directed to the idea of discovery as an informing principle of style among early English essayists. The main focus of the reading and research will be central figures such as Francis Bacon, John Donne, and Ben Jonson as well as to other early essayists such as Sir William Cornwallis, Robert Johnson, and Daniel Tuvill.

Implementation of a web-based platform to enhance research on the social networks of Great Britain in the early modern era, 1500-1700. The project would also make available open-source software to facilitate development of tools for additional regions and time periods.

Six Degrees of Francis Bacon is a digital reconstruction of the early modern British social network that people from all over the world can collaboratively expand and revise. It harnesses digitized texts, natural language processing, network inference methods, and distributed historical expertise to create the broadest, most accessible source of who knew whom in early modern Britain. The beta version of our website, created collaboratively with undergraduate programmers, has received nearly 30,000 hits since going live in September 2015 and is growing daily through the contributions of scholars, students, and citizen humanists. An NEH grant would allow us, first, to transform Six Degrees into an accessible, sustainable, and vital resource that will continue to grow and serve the early modern community for the long term, and, second, to package and distribute our code so that scholars can create similar networks for different eras and regions.

18 months of stipend support (3-4 fellowships) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

The John Carter Brown Library is seeking a renewal of its current funding for long- term NEH fellowships a year to encourage advanced scholarship using the Library's unique and rare collection of materials related to the Americas, north and south, during the colonial period (roughly 1492-1825). The Library seeks to repeat this funding for this purpose every year for a period of three years. The result of the research conducted will be shared with other scholars via the curricula they organize at the institutions of higher learning with which they are primarily affiliated, in the classes they teach, in lectures, seminars, talks, and conferences, on websites and through podcasts and other media, as well as with the public-at-large via the Library’s own publications, exhibitions, and online outreach in Providence and well beyond.

Preparation for print and online publication of 13th-century philosopher Richard Rufus’ In Aristotelis De Anima, Scriptum in Metaphysicam Aristotelis, and Oxford Lectures. (36 months)

Richard Rufus introduced the teaching of Aristotle's metaphysics & natural philosophy at Paris, the heart of the 13th-century western intellectual world. Rufus analyzed & challenged Aristotle's arguments, and thereby influenced the great Scholastic philosophers who followed him. We see his influence in Roger Bacon's arguments against Aristotle and for a beginning of the world, in Albertus Magnus' discussion of universals, in Aquinas' rejection of the ontological argument, and in Duns Scotus' formal distinction and his theory of individuation.  After they were lost for 600 years, the British Academy (BA) published Rufus' Physics lectures in 2003. In 2006, the Richard Rufus Project (RRP) began publishing critical editions online, starting with Rufus' psychology lectures. In 2011, RRP resumed publishing with the BA. In 2016 RRP submitted Rufus' psychology lectures to the BA. In 2017-20 RRP will submit its 2 volume edition of Rufus Metaphysics lectures to BA and begin work on his Oxford Lectures.

Preparation for print and online publication of a commentary on Aristotle’s metaphysics, redaction of Averroes’ Metaphysics, and the Oxford lectures of Richard Rufus of Cornwall, an early Scholastic philosopher-theologian (ca. 1200-1260). (36 months)

Richard Rufus introduced the teaching of Aristotle's Metaphysics and natural philosophy at Paris, the heart of the 13th-c. western intellectual world. At Oxford Rufus was the first bachelor to lecture on Lombard's Sentences. His very early lectures analyzed & challenged Aristotle's and Lombard's views. He thereby influenced the views of the great Scholastic philosophers who followed him, such as Roger Bacon's arguments for a beginning of the world, Albertus Magnus' discussion of universals, Aquinas' rejection of the ontological argument, and Duns Scotus' formal distinction and his theory of haecceity. After they were lost for 600 years, the British Academy (BA) began publishing our editions of Rufus' works, most recently his psychology lectures in 2018. In 2006, the Richard Rufus project (RRP) began publishing critical editions online. In 2020-23 RRP will submit vol. 2 of Rufus' Metaphysics lectures and vol. 1 of his Oxford lectures to the BA and publish online a newly discovered redaction of Averroes' Metaphysics in Latin.
