CFP: Aristotle in the 21st Century (Fordham Grad Conference)



A CFP put out by the Philosophy Department at Fordham University:

Despite our considerable cultural, scientific and historical distance from Aristotle his thought remains a fertile source of philosophical insight. The rise of virtue ethics in the 20th century furnishes a paradigmatic example of how Aristotle can still be brought into productive conversation with contemporary philosophical debates. Perhaps, however, Aristotle’s insights were not limited to ethics alone. Therefore, the goal of Fordham’s next biennial graduate student conference Aristotle in the 21st Century is to explore whether and how Aristotle’s work might advance contemporary debates in action theory, philosophy of mind, metaphysics, political theory and other areas as well as ethics. We will welcome as plenary speakers Prof. Michael Thompson of the University of Pittsburg and Fordham’s own Prof. John Drummond.

The conference will be held the 5-6th of March, 2010 at Fordham’s Rose Hill campus in the Bronx.

Graduate students wishing to submit a paper for consideration are asked kindly to email their submissions by 1 Jan 2010 to:
