Call for papers in honour of J. J. Cleary: Philosophy and mathematics (1er avril)‏

Philosophy and Mathematics

A memorial conference in honour of Professor John J.
Cleary

Trinity College Dublin, 28th ? 29th May 2010

On 12 April 2009 Ireland lost a consummate human being ? a philosopher of
tremendous acumen and a man of great kindness and integrity. Professor
John Cleary?s
influence touched the lives of colleagues and students all over the
world, and not least in
his home departments of NUI Maynooth and Boston College. He approached each
endeavour with courage, zeal, optimism and fortitude, and all of these
qualities were
certainly evident as Professor Cleary faced his final days. As a
scholar of ancient
philosophy, Professor Cleary was interested and well versed in all
aspects of the
discipline from the Presocratics through to the Neoplatonists, but his
two specialties were
Aristotle?s theory of mathematics, and Greek education, or the paideia
project. In
keeping with these themes, the Dublin Centre for the Study of the
Platonic Tradition in
conjunction with the Trinity College Dublin Long Room Hub is proud to
announce the
above conference in honour of Professor John Cleary.

Papers submitted to the conference should be suitable for a 30-minute
presentation. Each presentation will be followed by a 15-minute
discussion period.
Papers can be on any topic relating to philosophy and mathematics.
Abstracts of not more
than 1000 words should be submitted no later than the 1st of April
2010, and should be
emailed with no identifying characteristics to larsenp@tcd.ie, or
kaklamae@tcd.ie Please
also send, as a separate attachment, a cover letter with your name,
email address and
home institution.

A website with further information will be forthcoming and can be accessed at
www.theplatocenter.com. In the meantime, if you have any queries
please direct them to
larsenp@tcd.ie or kaklamae@tcd.ie.
