“Latin American Colonial Scholasticism: Some Major Topics in Practical Philosophy”
Résumé | Abstract
The presentation will focus on key contributions in the area of practical philosophy by thinkers belonging to the period of what is known as Colonial Scholasticism (scholastica colonialis). The main themes I will cover are: 1) natural rights, 2) the new "ius gentium" and the theory of conflict / war (Francisco de Vitoria, Domingo de Soto, Bartolome de Las Casas, Alonso de Veracruz, Jose de Acosta), and 3) debates pertaining to the question of slavery, particularly black slavery, with special attention to such authors as Thomas de Mercado, Luis de Molina, Diego de Avendano, Alonso de Sandoval, and the largely unknown Capuchins Epifanio de Moirans and Francisco Jose de Jaca. I will also briefly touch on the question of "restitutio".
Au plaisir de vous y voir | Looking forward to see you
