War and Strife in Ancient Philosophy

last modified Feb 27, 2015 09:35 AM
The 2015 Cambridge Graduate Conference in Ancient Philosophy
University of Cambridge, Faculty of Classics
27-28 March, 2015

War and strife, both internal and external, were an ever-present part of life in the ancient world, and so it is no surprise that these played a central theme in ancient philosophy. The 2015 Cambridge Graduate Conference in Ancient Philosophy aims to explore the various ways in which war and strife are thematised in ancient philosophy, both in terms of how these concepts are themselves conceived and how they serve as themes for wider metaphysical concerns.

We are delighted to announce that Lesley Brown (Oxford) and Angela Hobbs (Sheffield) will be presenting keynote papers.

The conference will run from mid-day of Friday the 27th of March to the afternoon of Saturday the 28th of March.
