Hétérodoxie et Tradition (Fribourg, 16-18 avril)

Heterodoxy and Tradition:

Conflict and Dialogue in Ancient Pagan and Christian Philosophy

16-18 April 2015

Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg

How did ancient thinkers deal with diverging opinions and teachings, both within and outside of their philosophical schools? How did engaging with what one might call ‘heterodoxy’ shape philosophical, religious and cultural traditions? To what extent did ancient philosophers themselves think in terms of ‘orthodoxy’ and ‘heterodoxy’? By what mechanisms did thinkers distinguish, privilege, or exclude particular views? What were the social and political implications of these theoretical processes? This conference aims to debate these questions with reference to philosophical developments from the 1st century BC through the 6th century AD. Both pagan and Christian philosophical traditions will be discussed, with particular attention to the interaction between them.
