Conference: Émilie Du Châtelet’s "Foundations of Physics"

Location: McKenna Hall

In 2009, Isabelle Bour and Judith Zinsser published a partial translation of Émilie Du Châtelet’s Foundations of Physics. Since 2014, faculty and students at the University of Notre Dame have worked to complete the translation (see here). This conference celebrates the completion of the project.

The conference will feature talks, presentations, and discussions of the text, its philosophical and historical context and significance, and ways of incorporating Du Châtelet’s philosophy into undergraduate teaching.
