Extended Call for Papers
St Andrews Graduate Conference in Ancient Philosophy 2018, on:
– Teleology, Intelligence and Life in the Platonic and Aristotelian Tradition –
Teleology plays a central role in both Plato’s and Aristotle’s philosophy. It is essential in particular for their cosmological views and their conceptions of intelligence (nous) and life. We are interested in a deeper understanding of both Plato’s and Aristotle’s approach to teleology in all their aspects and the principal differences between them. We invite graduate students to submit high-quality papers on any topic related to teleology within the Platonic or Aristotelian tradition, broadly construed, in antiquity.
