      Conference on Boscovich's Unified
      field theory- basis of modern physics - next week -




      Symposium abstract
      Rogerius Joseph Boscovich / Rudjer Josip Bošković (1711,
      Dubrovnik, Croatia - 1787, Milano, Italy): One of the greatest
      European scientists of all time, natural philosopher, mathematician,
      physicist, technician, poet, Jesuit, diplomat. His research and
      achievements were spread over the fields of astronomy, optics,
      mechanics, geodesy, and construction techniques, of his time.
      Boscovich’s epoch-making work “A Theory of Natural
      Philosophy” (Vienna 1758 and Venice 1763, respectively) with
      the points-atoms as the ultimate building blocks of Nature, was based
      on the single universal law of forces that exists in nature. He used
      a method of thinking of Newton and Leibniz, synthesized and unified
      them for the first time into his new original method of thinking of
      Nature. Boscovich’s method may be expressed by the epistemological
      formula of ‘more geometrico sive mathematico – more
      rationali – more empirico – more theologico’,
      as the four basic concepts of science, philosophy and religion that
      have been unified together by his mind. Boscovich’s contribution
      reflects many controversial issues of the philosophy of nature and
      science in particular in the XVIII century. However, his Theory itself is fundamental for modern scientific picture and basic
      concepts of nature till today, due to structure and particles
      phenomenology included in it. It is crucial to discuss history and
      actual status of the natural sciences and related technologies along
      the roads of the Boscovich’s legacy.
