ITAL300 - TOPICS: ITALIAN CULTURE: VERNACULAR SCIENCE

Section Description: 
Philosophy, medicine, science have always been considered elitist pursuits. In medieval Europe the mark of this privileged status was represented by Latin, the lingua franca of universities for centuries. Nonetheless between the 13th and 15th centuries a vernacular science also arose: this did not show any peculiar rivalry with its Latin counterpart, even if at the certain point it was receptive of humanist influences. This course aims at framing vernacular science in its cultural context, taking into consideration authors such as Dante, Petrarch, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo Galilei, and many others. The course is taught in Italian.
