CFP : Panel “New approaches to Plato” for the Celtic Conference in Classics

New Approaches to Plato in Context The last twenty years have witnessed a renewed interest in the study of the Platonic dialogues in their literary, historical, and sociopolitical contexts. From groundbreaking work on the genre of the dialogue, to reassessments of Plato as a political philosopher, and numerous publications on Plato as a theorist of performance and critic of democracy, recent scholarship on Plato in context has often sought to go beyond strict adherence to the methodologies of analytical philosophy, emphasizing instead Plato’s embeddedness within classical Athenian culture. At the same time, this contextualized study of the dialogues has taken advantage of theoretical perspectives drawn from disciplines such as anthropology, comparative literature and literary theory, performance studies, and sociology. On the surface, these innovative approaches to Plato may appear to have little in common with each other; yet, in toto, it might be argued that renewed interest in Plato [...]

Call for papers : A New Perspective on Plato and his Philosophical Methods

Posted by Naoya Iwata A New Perspective on Plato and  his Philosophical Methods An International Conference for Young Researchers Kyoto University, JAPAN 20–21st March, 2015 Keynote Speakers: Sylvain Delcomminette (Université Libre de Bruxelles) Yasuhira (Yahei) Kanayama (Nagoya University) It is generally supposed that Plato’s philosophical methodology changed over the course of his carrier. In the early dialogues we see Socrates’ cross-examination, called elenchus, in search of definitions. The middle dialogues introduce Plato’s more constructive approaches in relation to the theory of Forms, such as the theory of recollection, the method of hypothesis, and ‘dialectic’. His methodological concern seems to be dominated in the later works by ‘collection and division’. In addition, we should not forget the role of myths in his philosophy. This conference aims to investigate how Plato’s distinctive philosophical methods are related or unrelated to each other, with a close analysis of the characteristics of individual approaches. Can we really [...]

Call for papers – Plato and Xenophon: Comparative Studies

Plato and Xenophon: Comparative Studies Despite the prime importance of Plato, and the historical value and intrinsic interest of Xenophon, relations between these two students of Socrates remain a relatively unexplored area in contemporary research. We seek to fill this gap by building on valuable work that has been done recently in clarifying Xenophon’s philosophical positions and bringing his writings into closer relation with Plato’s. L. A. Dorion’s recently completed commentary on the Memorabilia and his just published volume of collected essays on Xenophon’ Socrates are among the prime examples of the recent flowering of studies on Xenophon and Xenophon’s Socrates. Their appearance provides us with an excellent opportunity to take stock of where the comparative study of Plato and Xenophon stands, and where we should take it from here. Our conference calls for papers that further this project by elucidating concepts found in Xenophon’s writings and bringing them into relationship [...]
