Subject: ircps description

The Institute for Research in Classical Philosophy and
Science is a non-profit educational corporation
established in late 1983 by a group of educators and
scholars at various academic institutions in Canada,
Europe, and the United States. Its primary purpose is
to enhance higher education and to promote research in
both the sciences and the humanities, by supporting
scholarly study concerning the history of the
interaction between science and its humanistic
interpretation in the various societies and language
groups constituting western culture.

In general, the Institute supports scholarly research in classical
philosophy and science up to the seventeenth century,
which marks the beginning of the modern era.
To meet this goal the Institute facilitates the
dissemination of research and promotes cooperation between
scholars in those disciplines that traditionally touch on
these subjects. Thus, in addition to sponsoring international
conferences and other forms of scholarly communication,
the Institute has established a program of publication that
includes bibliographies, translations, monographs, and
thematic collections of essays.

The Institute for Research in Classical Philosophy and Science
and Garland Publishing Inc., are pleased to announce a new series,

Sources and Studies in the History and
Philosophy of Classical Science.

This series (which is divided into Sources and Studies)
focuses on the classical sciences (e.g., mathematics,
astronomy, harmonics, optics, mechanics) in Western and
Near Eastern culture from antiquity to the 1700's, the
time of Newton and the beginning of the modern era. Its
aim is to make fundamental texts in the history of the
classical sciences accessible to the modern reader, by
means of translations and interpretations that satisfy
the requirements of specialists but still address the
needs of non-specialists and general readers.

Thus, the Sources will contain editions of scientific
treatises informing, belonging to, or deriving from the
classical tradition. There will also be translations of
these texts into English with general introductions and
philological/technical commentaries, as well as annotated
bibliographies and lexica.

The Studies will present the latest results of research
and interpretation in analyzing these works, their place
in their contemporary intellectual culture, and their
impact on subsequent philosophical and scientific thinking.

This new series is intended for readers who have a
professional or a general interest in the history and
philosophy of science in the Near Eastern and Greco-Roman
worlds and their legacy until the modern era, as well as
in intellectual history, and philology.
