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.
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. 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.

I argue that a better translation would be "gets a thorough look at the things that are only with much labor."
