Date: 1 & 2 July 2021, 9 am – 6 pm (UK time) each day
Place: Online (Zoom)
Change and changemakers are a central focus of much ancient philosophy. This workshop will seek to identify ideas from these ancient discussions which have salience to our contemporary philosophical debates concerning change, suggesting how these ideas may advance our current thinking.
This workshop is a collaborative initiative of the Change and Change-Makers Network (Siegen) together with the Mereology of Potentiality Project (Oxford). Participation is open to all researchers with an interest in these areas. To register please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
