Philosophy and Science: Unity and Plurality in the Early Modern Age

In the Principia philosophiae, Descartes uses the metaphor ‘tree’ in order to illustrate the unity of different fields of science. The whole tree represents the totality of philosophy. The image indicates that in early modern thinking philosophy and science covered the same areas of human knowledge. However, Cartesian thinking laid the grounds for the diversification of sciences, which resulted in the separation between hard sciences and philosophy some centuries later; while at the beginning of Modernity philosophy and science were synonymous, in the Early Modern Age we can observe their separation and the proliferation of different philosophical disciplines. The papers collected in this volume have two objectives: on the one hand, to present how early modern thinking made an effort to conceptualize science and philosophy together, and on the other hand, to analyse some stages of their separation.
