THE NEW ENGLAND SYMPOSIUM ON ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY
WHO WE ARE
The New England Symposium on Ancient Philosophy is an organization for academics located in the New England states to present their work-in-progress on some topic in Ancient Greek and Roman philosophy. Because the papers are distributed in advance, the meetings are devoted almost entirely to a lively discussion of the paper.
If you reside or work in New England and would like to join the Symposium, please contact us. Though you must be a member of the Symposium to present a paper, we welcome all scholars working in the field, no matter where they work or reside, to attend our meetings by using the RSVP links below.

This assessment is not only mistaken, but is an instance of testimonial injustice.
- Tue, Aug 10via ZoomAug 10, 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM EDTvia ZoomCan Socrates coherently maintain that he knows that knowledge is different from true opinion along with some other epistemological commitments in the dialogue? How might Meno’s epistemic condition change based on the recollection demonstration and the other Socratic arguments?
