Prof. Frans de Haas
Testimonial Prof. Frans de Haas

“Provocative philosophical claims rely on sound historical knowledge and vice versa.”

“I hold the chair of Ancient and Medieval Philosophy. In the master's in Philosophy, I teach Ancient Philosophy and its relation to mathematics and the sciences. It is characteristic of the study of philosophy in Leiden that historical and systematic aspects of philosophy are correlated with one another. Provocative philosophical claims rely on sound historical knowledge and vice versa...
This Greek philosopher wrote a standard work on true knowledge and how to acquire it. He established which demands science had to meet, and defined the structure of proofs. His model was the mathematical practice of his day, and it is likely that Aristotle, in turn, influenced Euclid when he was writing his Elements of Geometry.

In the Renaissance, there was a revival of interest in late antiquity in philosophers and scientists who studied Aristotle's texts anew. The scientific revolution in the 17th century cannot be understood without knowledge of the Aristotelian model of science. Even today, it is difficult to keep up with the number of works on Aristotle that are being published. It is a pleasure to work with students on these and related topics.”
