History and Historical Epistemology of Sciences within Iuvenilia-Early Galilean WorksSpecial issue of Philosophia Scientiæ 21(1) (February 2017)Guest editors: Raffaele Pisano (University of Lille 1, France), Paolo Bussotti (The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Berlin, Germany)Abstract submission deadline: 31-12-2014Notification of abstract acceptance: 25-01-2015 Full paper submission deadline: 01-01-2016Final notification: 01-07-2016Final version due: 01-09-2016Fees: No
 450 years passed from Galileo’s birth (1564, 15 of February). A Special Issue proposal emphasizing scientific, historical and epistemological aspects of Iuvenilia–Early Galilean works is necessary as a tribute to his birth. Therefore, a Call for papers concerning history, epistemology and historical epistemology of sciences is proposed:
MAIN TOPICSGenerally, the word Iuvenilia is reserved for Galileo's works in the initial pages of first volume of Favaro's edition (Galilei 1890-1909, I, pp. 7–178). According to the outlined panorama, we propose to extend the word Iuvenilia (it is the general title cited in Edizione Nazionale: Galilei 1890-1909, I, p. 7, p. 9; pp. 7–178) to the whole production of Galileo published before the Sidereus Nuncius, in 1610. We are hence referring to the content of the first two volumes of the Galilean Edizione Nazionale: i.e., De Caelo, La Bilancietta, Theoremata, De Sphaera et Cylindro by Archimedes, De motu (Ivi, I), and to Le mecaniche, early mechanics, statics, equilibrium etc. and to two pseudo Galilean non-autographed Fortifications works (Ivi, II).    Thus, before Sidereus Nuncius, we like to consider all these contributions as Iuvenilia (and their heritage) given the coherence of the subjects as far as their practical character is taken into account.
