ISU Savle Tsereteli Institute of Philosophy has received a grant from the University of Oxford
A research project “Artistotelism in Eastern and Western Christianity” prepared by Professor Tamar Tsopurishvili of the ISU Savle Tsereteli Institute of Philosophy, won the grant competition ''New Horizons for Science and Religion in Central and Eastern Europe'' announced by the University of Oxford and was awarded two-year (2020-2022) funding from the John Templeton Foundation.
The participants of the winning project to be carried out at the ISU Savle Tsereteli Institute of Philosophy are ISU PhD students, Ana Lomadze and Luka Kuchukhidze. The Project consultant is Professor Maia Rapava (PhD in Philology).
The project aims to prepare a critical edition of two eighteenth-century Georgian commentaries on Aristotle’s ''Peri Hermeneias'' and undertake their philosophical study by comparing them to Latin commentaries on the same text of Aristotle, in order to trace the possible influence of the philosophical and theological theories of Latin commentators.
The Oxford University project, ''New Horizons for Science and Religion in Central and Eastern Europe” aims to stimulate world-class research and outreach in twenty four countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).
