THE LIFE, SIGNIFICANCE, AND PHILOSOPHY OF CLEMENS TIMPLER, 1563/4-1624 (GERMANY)

Author: FREEDMAN, JOSEPH SELIN

http://pitt.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://search.proquest.com/docview/303243101?accountid=14709

Abstract: Sixteenth and seventeenth century European philosophy is a vast yet little studied field. During those two centuries, thousands of professors/other teachers instructed philosophy at European schools and universities. Various types of philosophical publications (textbooks, disputations, etc.) resulted from academic instruction held by these "academic philosophers". Few detailed studies have been written concerning individual academic philosophers; very little is known concerning the vast majority of these philosophers. This study presents a comprehensive and detailed examination of one academic philosopher: Clemens Timpler (1563/4-1624), a philosophy professor at the Gymnasium illustre Arnoldinum in Steinfurt/Westphalia. Max Wundt (1879-1963) is the only recent author who has discussed aspects of Timpler's philosophy in any detail. Wundt (rightly) praises Timpler's philosophical ability and points to (yet probably over-emphasizes) Timpler's influence on 17th century authors. The extant evidence relating to the various aspects of Timpler's life and career is presented within the context of the Steinfurt Gymnasium illustre Arnoldinum (and the other schools/universities at which he studied and/or taught). Timpler's philosophical writings arose out of his own academic instruction. Those writings (which include textbooks on metaphysics, physics, logic, rhetoric, ethics, family life, politics, optics, and human physiognomy) spread widely within 17th century Europe. Detailed attention is given to the manner in which the following authorities are cited within Timpler's writings: (1) post-AD 1500 authors (considered generally), (2) Ramus and "Ramists", (3) "Scholastics", (4) Aristotle and "Aristotelians". Timpler cited these authorities in an eclectic and independent manner. Timpler is a typical 16th/17th century academic philosopher with respect to (a) the topics which his own philosophical writings discussed and (b) the manner in which those writings were connected to his own academic instruction and career. The examination of Timpler's philosophical writings sheds light upon life, thought, and philosophy instruction in his day. However, Timpler's philosophical works also show high organizational and logical ability; he should be regarded as an extremely articulate and skilled representative of 16th and 17th century academic philosophy.

Studies on James Gregorie (1638-1675)

Author: Malet, Antoni

http://pitt.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://search.proquest.com/docview/303805250?accountid=14709

Abstract: As a general conclusion this dissertation suggests that the contributions of James Gregorie, Isaac Barrow and Isaac Newton are more closely related to one another than it is usually acknowledged. The first chapter contains a narrative on Gregorie's life and works. Evidence on Gregorie's life within 17th-century Scottish universities, his involvement in setting up the St. Andrews observatory, his activities in the early 1670's as leader of a Scottish network of mathematical virtuosi, and his juvenile astrological concerns is here produced for the first time. Gregorie's correspondence with Newton is studied. It is argued that John Collins, representing the world of practical mathematicians, was a source of motivations for some of Gregorie's mathematical discoveries, and that Gregorie's failed attempts to publicize his contributions clashed with institutional practices of the Royal Society. The second chapter studies Gregorie's contributions to optics, including a hitherto unpublished manuscript. Focusing on the origins of the notion of geometrical optical image, which are shown to have been influenced by the philosophical empiricism, I argue that Gregorie, Barrow, and Newton produced a methodological revolution in geometrical optics. The new optical science differed from Kepler's geometrical optics in that it was not a mixed mathematical science in the Aristotelian sense, but rather sought experimental confirmation for its basic notions and results, and thus provided a direct methodological antecedent to Newton's Principia. Studying Gregorie's work on "Taylor" expansions and his analytical method of tangents, which has passed unnoticed so far, the third chapter argues that Gregorie's work is a counter-example to the standard thesis that geometry and algebra were opposed forces in 17th-century mathematics. The last chapter studies and translates an unpublished mathematical manuscript with results that are similar to those in section 1 of Newton's Principia. Placing the contributions of Newton and Gregorie in the context of 17th-century discussions on indivisibles, I argue that Gregorie and Newton were idiosyncratic in their rejection of indivisibles. Research on the manuscripts of James Gregorie and David Gregory shows that David's Geometria practica is actually James's, and that David's optical book heavily borrows from James's optical manuscript.

The structure and philosophy of group research: August Wilhelm Hofmann's research program in London (1845-1865)

Author: Keas, Michael Newton

http://pitt.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://search.proquest.com/docview/304047865?accountid=14709

Abstract: As a teacher, experimentalist, and organizer of science, August Wilhelm von Hofmann (1818-1892) made an important contribution to British and German chemistry. He improved the laboratory research and instructional methods developed by Justus Liebig in Giessen and pondered their epistemological assumptions long after Liebig had retreated to agricultural and physiological chemistry. Hofmann became the first professor of the British Royal College of Chemistry in 1845 and continued his teaching and research in London until 1865 when he accepted an invitation to direct the chemistry program at the University of Berlin. A number of his students and assistants became prominent chemists in England and Germany. This dissertation analyzes the composition, organization, and methodology of Hofmann's laboratory research group in London and explains how these factors guided the group's choice and solution of research problems. In particular it shows how the composition and organization of the research group interacted both in harmonious and in conflicting ways with Hofmann's academic goals and scientific presuppositions to carry out a body of group research achievements.

Microscopes to munitions: Ernst Abbe, Carl Zeiss, and the transformation of technical optics, 1850-1914

Author: Feffer, Stuart M.

http://pitt.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://search.proquest.com/docview/304106883?accountid=14709

Abstract: Ernst Abbe was a physicist and a professor at the University of Jena, best known for his contributions to the theory and design of optical instruments. Most of his work in this area was done in association with or (later) as proprietor of the firm of Carl Zeiss--a small workshop specializing in the custom manufacture of scientific instruments when he joined it, but an industrial enterprise with over a thousand employees by the time he retired. Abbe revolutionized the design and construction of microscope systems during the 1870s and 1880s, building Zeiss into Germany's premier optical supplier. The first half of the dissertation deals primarily with developments in microscopy, surveying the state of physical and practical knowledge about the construction of the microscope at the time Abbe began his work, showing how he related to that knowledge and made use of it, and examining how various communities of microscopists responded to what he published and what Zeiss' workshop produced. The remainder traces the effects that Abbe's and Zeiss' success with high-performance microscope systems had on the firm and on the German optical industry. Among other things, it prompted Abbe and Zeiss to invest in a new glassworks, which was eventually established with financial assistance from the Prussian government. Several circles in Berlin were extremely interested in this factory for reasons of their own, and the dissertation follows their interests, tying them to the political efforts that also led to the establishment of the Physikalisch-Technische Reichsanstalt. The dissertation also examines a period of explosive growth which the Zeiss company underwent in the 1890s and 1900s as many of the techniques and materials that had previously transformed microscopy found new places on the battlefield or at sea, in the form of new optical range finders, binoculars, gun sights, and other instruments of war.
