Galileo’s discoveries have inundated and modified our image of literature in many different ways. In the 17th and following centuries, poets and intellectuals have been nourished in their works by the Italian scientist’s writings.
The journal Galilaeana. Studies in Renaissance and Early Modern Science invites article proposals for a monograph issue on “Galileo and Literature”. The aim of this call is to draw attention to two specific issues of historical, literary, and philosophical research. On the one hand, the objective is to explore how Galileo considered and used literature; on the other, to observe how past and current writers and intellectuals have tested and enriched their knowledge with Galileo’s teachings.
