Current Research Projects in the Department

The Department is engaged in many long-term research projects, as well as many smaller projects. We present here some of those which are most closely identified with our approach to the history of science, which concentrates on making available in critical editions some of the thousands of unknown texts on mathematics and astronomy, on explaining them in terms both of modern science and of the culture that produced them, and on exploring the ways in which culture and science interact.
