The aim of this research project is to outline the life, work, and views of the Swedish mathematician Nicolaus Andreae Granius (ca. 1569 – 1631), and to focus, in particular, on his documented impact against the background of the university of Helmstedt at the beginning of the seventeenth century. This project also aims to account for the fact that later articulations of Aristotelian learning in Protestant schools such as the Academia Julia help to reconstruct a mutual influence, both theoretical and curricular, of logic and natural philosophy in the late Renaissance.
