Call for abstracts : Platonic Moral Realism

MIDTERM MEETING OF THE INTERNATIONAL PLATO SOCIETY EMORY UNIVERSITY ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA MARCH 13-15, 2015 PLATONIC MORAL REALISM The committee invites papers on Plato’s and the Platonic tradition’s positions on the philosophical thesis that values—such as goodness or justice—are objective. The metaphysical thesis that such “Forms” as the Good or the Just enjoy an existence independent of human opinions or social arrangements is generally taken to entail the objectivity of certain human values. Possible paper topics include the metaphysical grounding for these values or for the virtues, method(s) of discovering and explicating the nature of moral values and virtues, and the means of coming to possess or partake in them. Further, was Plato able to answer the Sophists’ arguments for moral relativism? Does he have conceptual resources to answer the arguments of contemporary relativists? We construe the subject broadly and will consider papers on any Platonic dialogue or any work [...]

25-27 April 2014, Regional IPS meeting: “Plato and Rhetoric,” Tokyo, Japan

International Symposium “Plato and Rhetoric” organized by the JSPS Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Project Organizing Committee: Noburu Notomi (Keio University), Yuji Kurihara (Tokyo Gakugei University), Satoshi Ogihara (Tohoku University) From the evening of 25 to 27 April 2014 Venue: Raiosha Building, Hiyoshi Campus, Keio University, Yokohama <http://www.keio.ac.jp/en/maps/hiyoshi.html> Rooms: Symposium Space (1st fl.): Opening, Plenary, Parallel A Large Meeting Room (2nd fl.): Parallel B Regional Meeting of the International Plato Society The JSPS Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Project Plato is usually thought to be hostile to rhetoric in contrast to philosophy. However, we can observe that his dialogues are deeply embedded in the rhetorical tradition: in particular, the Apology of Socrates (forensic) and Menexenus (epitaphic). Speakers of the dialogues make much use of rhetorical skills to persuade others. Even the Gorgias and Phaedrus, the two main examinations of rhetoric, seem to propose the genuine art of rhetoric (which may be dialectic). In this conference, we would like to re-examine the notion and [...]
