VD 17 23:294904N; Ziegenfuss-Jung II, p.681. - TWO VERY RARE works ranging from medicine to cosmology, physics to philosophy. Taurellus (1547-1606) was professor of medicine at Basel and Altdorf and is best known for his works on medicine, ethics and philosophy. He attacked the pantheism of the Italian Aristotelians and created a Protestantly oriented philosophy, which sought to reconcile Luther's teachings about original sin and faith with philosophy, first in Philosophiae triumphus (1573). Taurellus identifies as main opponents Francesco Piccolomini, the Jesuit school of Coimbra, more generally the sixteenth-century Aristotelianism, and also Cesalpino.
He "developed a method that made natural philosophy dependent on metaphysics and in turned demonized natural philosophers living in Catholic lands. Accordingly, Taurellus believed his philosophy successfully combined theology and the study of nature. Even though this goal was similar to that of Jesuits and other Catholic orders, Taurellus distinguished his philosophical views on God from the Coimbrans' commentators and other theologically minded philosophers. His attacks, however, were most vehement and relentless against lay Italian philosophers who held that natural philosophy should be independent from considerations of the divine. He found two Italians to be the most egregious: Francesco Piccolomini and Andrea Cesalpino, both of whom he saw as producing a naturalistic version of philosophy that overlooked key questions of faith. For Taurellus, the dangers of naturalism were remedied by a consideration of metaphysics that corresponded to theology.The most extensive analysis of Taurellus' work depicts him as shifting Ger-man philosophy from being dominated by studies of logic to studies of meta-physics, a change that became fully realized in the work of Leibniz, who indeed was familiar with Taurellus' writings."
