Christophe Erismann

The philosopher Christophe Erismann is an expert in the history (of philosophy) of the Early Middle Ages. With the ERC Consolidator Grant he wants to implement a project based on the history of philo sophy that aims at achieving a better understanding and fairer assessment of the contribution of authors from the 9th century in the field of philosophy, in particular the field of logic. From a transcultural perspective, a team comprising philologists and historians of philosophy thus studies the four big linguistic traditions of the Mediterranean that saw thinkers who addressed the Aristotelian categories and the logic inspired by Aristotle in general, namely the Greek, Latin, Syrian and Arabic traditions.
