The meeting will examine the relation of Hegel’s thought to ancient philosophy, including Late Antiquity and non-Western philosophies of the ancient world. Papers may address the topic in a variety of ways. They may take a historical approach covering, for example, Hegel’s treatment of ancient philosophy (in the Lectures on the History of Philosophy, and elsewhere), or the influence of ancient philosophy on Hegel. Papers may also approach the topic systematically, dealing with aspects of Hegelian philosophy in relation to ancient thought, or vice versa. Papers may also treat current or perennial debates concerning Hegel’s relation to ancient philosophy. Submissions are limited to 6,000 words. Later adjustments must remain within this limit.
