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.

Though we began as an on-line organization due to demands of the pandemic, we will continue to meet on-line to maximize accessibility and sustainability.


If you reside or work in New England and would like to join the Symposium, please contact us. If you a member of the Symposium, and would like to present some work-in-progress, please reach out, and we'll get you on our calendar.  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.

 

Upcoming Events

  • Jyl Gentzler, "Defending Socrates' Defense of Justice Once More"
    Oct 20, 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM
    via Zoom
    In 1963, David Sachs raised a challenge against Socrates' defense of justice in the Republic that has generated a multitude of responses. I argue that both Sachs and Plato's defenders fail to appreciate the significance of Socrates' vision of a just society to his defense of being a just person.
