Aims and objectives

  • To put 1st-century BC philosophy on the map as a discrete research topic with its own internal problematic.
  • To move towards the level of understanding at which a comprehensive history (the Cambridge History ?) of 1st-century BC philosophy can be written.
  • To prepare and publish collections and editions of testimonia for individual philosophers and movements.
  • To organise seminars leading to at one or more volumes of thematically linked research papers.
