At this Forum,

we bring together experienced and younger scholars working on Hellenistic and Roman Philosophy from all around the world. Participants present new research, exchange views and test new approaches in reading philosophical texts from the Hellenistic and Roman period in a spirit of open, mutual collaboration. Our online meetings enjoy large and lively participation, creating a unique platform for all those interested in this fascinating area of study.

New directions:

In the third season of the Forum we have decided to explore some new directions by inviting two speakers simultaneously  and discussing their papers in a podium talk.
