The Eleventh Cambridge Graduate Conference in Ancient Philosophy
‘Perspectives on Agency and Philosophy of Mind in Ancient Philosophy’
March 18th- 19h 2022
We are pleased to announce our call for papers for our interdisciplinary conference ‘Perspectives on Agency and Philosophy of Mind in Ancient Philosophy,’ to take place in the Faculty of Classics at the University of Cambridge. It has increasingly become clear that Greek and Roman philosophy has made an important contribution to the study of motivation, intentionality, desire, and agency in philosophy. This conference will explore the linkages between these concepts and the ways in which ancient thinkers were able to offer systemic accounts of theory of action. It will also welcome contemporary and other approaches inspired by ancient thought. We invite graduate students and early-career researchers (within three years of completion of their degree) from a variety of disciplines in the humanities—philosophy, literature, theology, political theory, reception studies—to submit philosophically-oriented papers on the subjects mentioned. The conference will take place in a hybrid format with presentations in the Faculty of Classics, Cambridge and via Zoom.
We are also pleased to announce that our keynotes speakers will be Prof. Ursula Coope (Oxford) and Dr. Fiona Leigh (UCL).
