Forum of Hellenistic and Roman Philosophy
At this Forum, we are driven by the goal to offer fresh perspectives on Hellenistic and Roman philosophy (defined chronologically roughly from 300 BCE to 200 AD). The aim of this forum is to bring together experienced and younger scholars working on Hellenistic and Roman Philosophy from all around the world in order to present new research in this area, exchange views and test new approaches in reading philosophical texts from the Hellenistic and Roman period. Since meeting people and attending conferences has inevitably become difficult under the current conditions we hope that such an initiative will facilitate communication and dialogue on this fascinating area of study.
We wish to highlight the variety of philosophical texts, concepts, genres and methods that were used during the Hellenistic and Roman periods, and focus on the different scholarly approaches that have been developed to understand them. Our online meetings aim to bring together scholars and participants from different countries to foster an exchange of views and test new ideas in a spirit of openness and mutual collaboration.
