Scholarship on the history of early modern philosophy has witnessed a turn toward research methodologies that relate canonical texts to developments in their wider historical contexts. Most importantly, this has entailed an engagement with the history of the Scientific Revolution, which simultaneously transformed the European intellectual tradition, giving birth to modern science. Indeed, it has become clear that science and philosophy were not clearly distinguished at the time, so a history of one is necessarily a history of the other.

This NEH-sponsored conference supports the publication of the Cambridge History of Philosophy of the Scientific Revolution. Invited speakers will present their contributions to the volume.
