10 janvier 2022 – 16 mai 2022 // Leuven Colloquia on Ancient Platonism
We are delighted to announce the launch of the Leuven Colloquia on Ancient Platonism (LCAP), a new lecture series on the history of ancient Platonism (from the Early Academy to Late Antiquity), hosted by the KU Leuven Institute of Philosophy.
These lectures will be held on a monthly basis, starting in January 2022, and will be given by leading specialists in the history of Platonism. Each year the general theme will be narrowed down through the selection of a specific topic. For the academic year 2021/2022 the chosen topic is ‘principle’ (archê). For further information, please visit this webpage or download the poster.
