TitelMLA-Panel: Mathematics in the Goethezeit
BeschreibungModern Languages Association Annual Meeting
Boston, January 3-6, 2013

Session co-sponsored by the Goethe Society of North America and the MLA Executive Committee for the Division on 18th- and Early 19th-Century German Literature
Despite recent work on science around 1800, studies on the relations between mathematics and German thought in this period are rare. This session will explore ways in which different aspects of mathematics intersected with literary and philosophical endeavors of the Goethezeit. Possible avenues of exploration: Kant’s philosophy as a grounding of mathematical physics; Solomon Maimon’s use of “differentials” to offer a critical reading of Kantian Idealism; Goethe’s relationship to mathematical theories of nature; Schelling’s theory of “potencies” (or other features of his Naturphilosophie); Hegel’s critique of mathematical formalism and/or his treatment of calculus in the Logic; receptions of Spinoza’s “geometrical method,” Newton, Leibniz, Wolf; the impact of specific mathematicians (e.g., Leonhard Euler, one of the greatest of the century); the Romantics’ treatment of mathematics as science and metaphor (to infinity and beyond...); traces of mathematical thinking in literary texts and the aestheticization of mathematical thought.
Please email proposals (300 words) to John H. Smith (jhsmith@uci.edu or jh2smith@uwaterloo.ca) by March 1st.
