ORGANA: ANCIENT AND NEW
** available as of 06/30/2021
Aristotle's Organon served as foundational orienting texts for much of early Greek, Roman, Arabic, and medieval European natural philosophy. The decline of scholastic Aristotelian orientation in natural science is epitomized in Francis Bacon's pointedly named New Organon. This course compares and contrasts Aristotle's Organon with Bacon's New Organon together with additional scholastic and early modern writings on scientific method.
