Title: Vacancies – Three PhD positions in the history of modern philosophy and/or history and philosophy of science:RESPONSES TO NEWTON’S MATHEMATICAL-EXPERIMENTAL PARADIGM IN 18TH-CENTURY PHILOSOPHY
We are pleased to announce three four-year PhD positions in the history of modern philosophy and/or history and philosophy of science. The selected applicants will carry out part of the recently awarded project ‘RESPONSES TO NEWTON’S MATHEMATICAL-EXPERIMENTAL PARADIGM IN 18TH-CENTURY PHILOSOPHY’ (RENEW18). The project is funded by the Belgian research councils FWO and F.R.S.-FNRS (EOS) and led by Karin de Boer (KU Leuven), Steffen Ducheyne (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), and Arnaud Pelletier (Université libre de Bruxelles).
In addition to carrying out one of the designated subprojects, the selected applicants are expected to participate in (the organization of) common activities such as team meetings, talks, workshops, and conferences. We seek to foster an environment where all talents can flourish, regardless of gender or cultural background.
Deadline: December 10, 2022
Preferred starting date: February 2023

1. [De Boer] Non-Newtonian Conceptions of Space and Time in 18th-century German Philosophy: Wolff, Gottsched, Crusius, and Kant (1719-1770). Proposals on related debates in 18th-century German philosophy, or with a more limited scope, will be taken into consideration as long as they fit within the scope of RENEW18.
2. [Ducheyne] Resistance to Newton in the Dutch Republic. Proposals on related debates in 18th-century Dutch Republic will be taken into consideration as long as they fit within the scope of RENEW18.
3. [Pelletier] ‘Newton’s Metaphysics’ in 18th-century French Materialism. Proposals centered on one of the main figures (La Mettrie, Diderot, D’Holbach), on other ones, or on debates in 18th-century French philosophy will also be taken into consideration as long as they fit within the scope of RENEW18.
RENEW18 aims to bring into focus the widely divergent responses to the mathematical-experimental paradigm elaborated in Newton’s Principia mathematica (1687) and Opticks (1704) on the part of 18th-century philosophers. The project studies the direct and indirect effects of Newton’s works on philosophers who drew from Aristotelian, Cartesian, Leibnizian, and Wolffian sources, covers the period between 1700 and 1800, treats developments in the Dutch Republic, England, France, and Germany, and foregrounds the impact of non-canonical authors and movements on canonical authors and the other way around.
