CALL FOR PAPERS: "Aristotelian Encounters"

Roosevelt Academy, Middelburg, The Netherlands

January 2007

The aim of this conference is to re-evaluate Aristotle's contributions
to philosophy, science and art from a contemporary and multidisciplinary
perspective. Possible topics include Aristotle's logic, physics,
biology, psychology, metaphysics, ethics, politics, economics, rhetoric
and poetics. Authors are invited to elaborate on the Wirkungsgeschichte
of an Aristotelian (sub-)discipline and/or to investigate its relevance
for today. Please note that Aristotelian Encounters will not be a
specialist conference on textual exegesis of Aristotle's writings, but
rather an interdisciplinary gathering around Aristotle's work. All
participants will receive (electronic versions of) all papers to be
presented at the conference well in advance, and will be expected to
have read all contributions in order to make stimulating in-depth
discussions possible. All contributions will be fully refereed and
published in a special issue of the interdisciplinary journal
Foundations of Science.

Please submit an abstract (250-300 words) by e-mail
( no later than 1 September 2005. The final paper
will be due no later than 1 March 2006.

Organising committee: Michael Burke, Mark Janse, Bert Mosselmans.
