Professor Stephen Read Receives Leverhulme Project Grant

Professor Stephen Read (Emeritus, Arché Research Centre – Philosophy) has been awarded a Leverhulme Project Grant for a project on ‘Theories of Paradox in Fourteenth-Century Logic: Edition and Translation of Key Texts’. The grant is worth £155,655 over three years, and will pay for the appointment of a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant for three years from June 2017 and the additional costs of the research. The aim is to produce critical editions from the medieval manuscripts of the texts on insolubles by Paul of Venice, Walter Segrave, John Dumbleton and Peter of Ailly, with English translations of the first three, and commentary.
