Ancient Philosophy and Its Modern Appropriations

International Conference of the Department of Philosophy of Central
European University

22-23 May 2020, Budapest, Hungary

*Keynote Speakers*

Dorothea Frede, Hamburg University

Lindsay Judson, Oxford University

*Application Deadline*

March 8th, 2020.

Ancient philosophers, through their incessant debates and discussions,
produced a vast array of highly complex competing conceptions about the
nature of reality, and its fundamental constituents. These debates produced
scientific, metaphysical ethical and political theories which are highly
interesting in their own right, but also in the way they set the frame for
later discussions and provide the starting points of competing conceptual
frameworks for later developments.

In our International Conference we invite participants to explore this
fascinating field: ancient Philosophy and the dynamic exchanges of ancient
philosophers on these topics, as well as the impact of those discussions
and theories on modern and contemporary philosophical debates.

The conference will be held in Budapest from May 22nd to May 23rd, 2020. It
intends to provide a forum for advanced students and researchers in their
early career interested in ancient and contemporary philosophy, and their
interrelationship.

Language of the conference is English. Participants will have 30 minutes to
present their papers (the full text of the papers may be made available on
the internet for the participants of the conference). This will be followed
by 20 minutes of discussion and comments given by readers and Q&A. Submissions
should be prepared for blind review.
