THE NEW ENGLAND SYMPOSIUM ON ANCIENT GREEK AND ROMAN
WHO WE ARE
The New England Symposium on Ancient Greek and Roman Philosophy is an organization for academics located in the New England states and in New York state 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 or New York and would like to join the Symposium, please contact us. If you are 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.

In his paper, Gooding will consider whether these claims are compatible with other views that Aristotle expresses about vice and eudaimonia.
