Call for papers – International Conference “The Fragments of Aristotle’s Lost Works”/Aristotle Today: Intnl. Multiple Congress (Lisbon, 6th-7th July 2016)

At the initiative of the Centre for Historical Ontology (Heidelberg – Helsinki – Leuven) in collaboration with the Universities and Research Institutes involved, and as a celebration of Aristotle’s 2400th anniversary, a set of interlinked conferences under the name Aristotle Today: International Multiple Congress will take place throughout 2016 in several European and North-American cities, namely the following: Athens, Córdoba, Heidelberg, Helsinki, Leuven, Lisbon, Moscow, Notre Dame (Indiana), Padua and Paris.

Each conference will approach a specific aspect of Aristotle’s thought. The conference to be held in the University of Lisbon will focus on the fragments of Aristotle’s lost works and will take place on July 6th and 7th 2016.

We are pleased to announce that the keynote speakers at this conference will be Professor
Christof Rapp (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München) and Professor Christopher Shields (University of Notre Dame, Indiana).

We welcome all proposals which address any topic within the scope of the conference. The presentations should have the maximum duration of 30 minutes and must be delivered in English. Exceptionally, presentations can be made in other languages, but in that case a written version in English must be supplied. Considering that there will be no parallel sessions and no more than 14 contributed papers can be accepted, we anticipate a highly competitive submission process. Proposals will be evaluated on relevance, quality, originality, and importance to the research field. The final decision on the accepted proposals will also contemplate that an interesting variety of subjects is represented in the conference program. The meeting is organised by the History of Philosophy Group of the Centre of Philosophy of the University of Lisbon (HPhil) and the Project of the Annotated Translation of the Complete Works of Aristotle (PTDC/MHC-FIL/0787/2014).
