Lobis, Seth. "Digby, Thomas Browne, and Philosophical Theology." The Philosophy of Kenelm Digby (1603-1665), edited by Laura Georgescu and Han Thomas Adriaenssen. Springer Cham, 2022, pp. 113-135.

Abstract: Kenelm Digby's Observations upon Religio Medici (1643) has often been dismissed as a hasty and self-serving response to the soon-to-be famous book by Thomas Browne. I argue that the two works represent diametrically opposed positions in one of the central debates of seventeenth-century European intellectual culture--that about the proper relationship between philosophy and theology. Digby counters Browne's fideism by defending philosophical approaches to theological questions and insisting that philosophy and theology are incompatible only for the philosophically unfit.

External Grant: Lobis, Seth. “Root Composition: Poetry and Etymology from Spenser to Milton.” The Huntington Library, 2022.

Abstract: 'Root Composition' overturns the longstanding critical assumption that poetic etymology was superficial and ornamental, a matter of individual jeux d’esprit. I argue that sixteenth- and seventeenth-century authors used etymology not merely as a means of adornment but also as a principle of composition. The first chapter of the book project examines etymological theory and practice in English and Continental writings on logic, grammar, rhetoric, and education between 1500 and 1700. Forming the core of the chapter, my research as a Mellon Fellow will center on three categories of materials in the Huntington’s collections: sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Continental works of logic, rhetoric, and educational theory, with a particular focus on works by Agricola, Erasmus, Ramus, and Talon; sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English works of logic, rhetoric, and educational theory, with a particular focus on works by Fenner, Fraunce, Milton, and Peacham; and sixteenth- and seventeenth-century works concerned with etymology and linguistic change—including etymological dictionaries—with a particular focus on works by Phillips, Skinner, Verstegan, and Vossius
