The GANPH (Gesellschaft für antike Philosophie – Workgroup on Theoretical Philosophy in Antiquity: ganph.de/arbeitsgemeinschaften/theoretische-philosophie) and the Munich School of Ancient Philosophy (MUSAPh) are pleased to invite you to the International Conference ‘Categories and Kinds: Ancient Philosophers on the Structure of Reality’, which will take place in Munich, on 8th-9th July 2022.


From Plato’s highest genera in the Sophist to Aristotle’s categorial scheme and transcategorial predicates to later developments in Hellenistic and Neoplatonic traditions, ancient and late ancient philosophy displays a number of different but intertwined approaches to a systematic account of the basic structures of reality. The main goal of the conference is that of providing a framework for the discussion of such theories.


The conference will include a key-note lecture by Fiona Leigh (University College London).


The main languages of the conference will be English and German, but papers in other languages will be considered too. We especially welcome applications from women and any other underrepresented group in Ancient Philosophy.


The deadline to submit abstracts (800 to 1000 words) is Tuesday, 15th February 2022. Anonymous abstracts should be submitted via email to Denis Walter (dwalter@uni-bonn.de).

The selected applicants will receive notification of acceptance together with further information about the conference by April 2022.
