Analytic Philosophy and Ancient Philosophy

The Conference "Analytic Philosophy and Ancient Philosophy" was held at St Anne's College, Oxford from 25 to 27 October 2013. The aim of the conference was to stimulate discussion of the benefits, limits, and perils of the application of the methods of analytic philosophy to the study of ancient philosophy. The conference featured six presentations by invited speakers and four presentations by early-career speakers, selected via a call for papers. The invited speakers were Lesley Brown (Oxford), Gail Fine (Cornell/Oxford), Terence Irwin (Oxford), Kathryn Morgan (UCLA), Vasilis Politis (Dublin), and Christopher Rowe (Durham). The early-career speakers were Konrad Banicki (Kraków), Matthew Duncombe (Groningen), Colin Guthrie King (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), and David C. Lee (Oxford). Papers ranged from the Presocratics to Hellenistic philosophers and included general discussions and a variety of case studies.
