    Porto, Faculdade de Letras, 26th-27th November 2018, Sala de reuniões

    Kick-off Meeting of the research project “From Data to Wisdom. Philosophising Data Visualisations in the Middle Ages and Early Modernity (13th-17th Century)”

    Members and international advisers of the project will present papers, in English or Portuguese, dealing with any of the following project issues:
    - Theory of perception or external senses;
    - Soul faculties or internal senses (e.g. memory, fantasy, imagination);
    - Diagrams and graphical representation of knowledge
    - Visualisation and effects of diagrams in the sciences.

    Due to the broad temporal dimension of the project, papers might concern medieval and modern problems or authors, as well as any subject derived from the contemporary criticism on the digital.

    Programm to be announced by the end of October.
