The texts on the infinity by Theofan Prokopovych and Georgiy Konyskyi and the available Ukrainian translations of them: a critical comparative edition

Keywords: Ukrainian philosophy, infinity, Second scholasticism

Abstract

The publication contains the original Latin text of sections "De infinito" from the philosophical courses of Theofan Prokopovych (1707-09) and Georgiy Konyskyi (1749-51). The comparison for the first time conclusively proves that these texts are almost identical. The publication of the text takes into account all the differences that exist in manuscripts known today. In parallel with the originals, there are Ukrainian translations of both texts (published, respectively, 1980 and 1990). Such publication makes it possible to evaluate changes in the Ukrainian philosophical and translation tradition.
