John Buridan's Philosophy of Mind: An International Conference on His Questions on Aristotle's De Anima (On the Soul)

A conference, volume of essays, and online "research hub" concluding the NEH-funded translation of the works of medieval French philosopher John Buridan. (12 months)

The proposed event will be an international conference devoted to the first complete, bilingual edition of John Buridan’s Questions on Aristotle’s De Anima (QDA, for short), serving as the “crowning event” of the project producing it. The conference itself will produce a volume of essays to be published together with the three volumes of the Latin critical text and annotated English translation, constituting a four-volume set that will present the state of the art concerning our understanding of late-medieval cognitive psychology and its role in the paradigm-shift toward early modern philosophy (a booming field of research in the past couple of years), as well as Buridan’s ground-breaking work itself, as an indispensable source for further research.
