Nature and the Divine in Ancient Greek Thought
Discussions of ancient Greek conceptions of nature and the divine have not been as plentiful recently as they once were. This may be due to disciplinary demarcations. There is no lack of discussion of either topic, of course, but discussion of the relations between the two concepts, or the lack thereof, is welcome if not needed.
The interdisciplinary conference, Nature and the Divine in Ancient Greek Thought, will take place March 2-4, 2018 at the University of South Florida Tampa campus. The conference is sponsored by the University of South Florida Interdisciplinary Center for Hellenic Studies and the University of South Florida Department of Philosophy. There will be three plenary lectures: one by Simon Trépanier of the University of Edinburgh, author of Empedocles: An Interpretation, another by Mor Segev of the University of South Florida, author of Aristotle on Religion, and a third by Wilson Shearin of the University of Miami, author of The Language of Atoms.
If you wish to participate please send an abstract of 1-2 pages by December 17, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org. If submissions permit, there will be a session featuring the work of graduate and undergraduate students. Notification regarding acceptance of abstracts will be made by January 7, 2018.
