Under a Cabbage Leaf – Stories of Spontaneous Generation

AlchemEast Workshop organized by Lucia Raggetti.
Invited speakers: Sean Coughlin, Remke Kruk.

Spontaneous generation has been a hot issue of the ancient and premodern scientific debate. Far from being doubted, in its long history this idea has seen a large diffusion in different fields of scientific and technical knowledge. This workshop will explore the idea of spontaneous generation in the continuum of the Graeco-Arabic tradition, and the success it met with in several fields of ancient science, such as alchemy, medicine and natural philosophy.
