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

  • William Edwards, "The Priorities and Benefits of Philosophical Conversation in Plato's _Gorgias_"
    Feb 23, 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM EST
    via Zoom
    Edwards argues that the philosophical conversation which has taken place has allowed the benefits that are dervied through non-elenchic means to take precedence over the supposedly primary benefit that comes from Socratic elenchus.
