Chinese Abstract

這次會議是一系列分析十六至十八世紀歐洲與亞洲在數學和其相關科學史領域互動的研討會之一,主要聚焦於中國,並將葡萄牙在歐洲科學東傳的角色帶到顯著的前端,同時亦將東亞知識傳往歐洲。在此寬廣的議題範圍內,這次會議將特別著重文本和視覺呈現,並關注分析與知識傳播問題密切關連的翻譯者作品與地圖繪製問題。

(此一系列會議的前四次分別於葡萄牙(1995)、澳門(1998)、日本東京(2005)與中國北京(2008)舉行,會後皆出版專書。)

 

English Abstract 

 

This conference is a part of a series of meetings which focus on the analysis of the interaction between Europe and Asia, mainly between the 16th and the 18th centuries in the field of mathematical sciences, with the main focus on China, and also bringing to the fore the role of Portugal as an agent of transmission of European science to East Asia, and simultaneously as an agent of the transmission of knowledge of East Asia to Europe. Within this broad theme, the conference will be more specifically devoted to visual and textual representations. In particular, we intend to analyse problems of transmission of knowledge associated with the work of translators and with the practice of cartography.
