The European Society for Early Modern Philosophy / Europäische
Gesellschaft für frühneuzeitliche Philosophie e.V. / Société européenne
pour les débuts de la philosophie moderne (ESEMP) is a European forum
for scholars and scientific institutions, investigating early modern
philosophy within its European context. From March 26th to March 30th
2007 the ESEMP organises its first international congress in 
cooperation with the Kulturwissenschaftliches Institut Essen (KWI) in Essen. The
topic of the congress:



Departure for modern Europe — Philosophy  between 1400 and 1700 / 

Aufbruch ins moderne Europa — Philosophie zwischen 1400 und 1700 /

Départ vers l'Europe moderne — La philosophie entre 1400 et 1700



The congress will look back upon theories of modernization in the last
decades. The intention is to take stock of those tendencies for a
departure for modernity, which by now have become the subject of
different disciplines — a fragmentation that was alien to early modern
thought. In which areas do the sciences or philosophy reflecting them
pursue certain linear paths of development leading to modernity
(comprehensively understood)? And where does it remain committed to
tradition? Are their roots really - as has often been suggested - a 
kind of inner logic guiding this process of e.g. economization,
mechanization, secularization, individualizing, mechanization of the
understanding of nature, deteleologization of the ethics, 
neutralization of the state etc. ?



It is the intention of the congress to survey the state of research in
this field and to open up new perspectives in twenty panels and five
workshops.



For your contribution the organizer requests either an abstract
clarifying the scope and aims of the paper and its central theses,
