 Project objective

BorGal orbits around the figure of the italian physiologist, physicist, and mathematician Giovanni Alfonso Borelli (1608-1679). He was the only one among the Galileo’s disciples to cross the disciplinary boundaries and to apply the master’s teaching to the different branches of scientific research. Like Galileo’s, his sperimentalism mantained a strong theoretical and ‘ideological’ committment; he pursued with extraordinary energy and method an overall strategy to spread the credo of the new philosophy in all fields of scientific investigation, in all Italian Universities (especially in the Mediterranean area) and even in the ‘public sphere’. Despite his unquestionable value, this figure has not yet been the object of a monographic project. BorGal will accomplish this necessary task to make clear to everybody the importance of B.’s in the making of European scientific thought and community. I aim to achieve these goals by employing and enhancing Borelli’s still neglected correspondence, and in particular: to recover it by merging published, unpublished and still-to-be-discovered letters; to process the correspondance-data through the methodology proposed by the Mapping the Republic of Letters Project sited at Stanford History Department. Once in the US with the support of the GF, thanks to the powerful desktop application and programming languages for data visualization developed by the MRofL team with the support of the Stanford Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis, I will be able to map, chart ‘heuristically’ visualize and make visible to others the spatial multifaceted dimentions of ‘B.’s galaxy’ (places, people, works, letters, instruments, objects, information…), as well as the way ‘Galileo’s heritage’ took shape circulating across it. Last but not least, this B’s epistolary – by means of BorGal - will allow us to connect to the European ‘Republic of Letters’ an alleged marginal area like Spanish Sicily.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "BORGAL" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
