Ed Feser announced a couple days ago on his blog that his new book Aristotle’s Revenge: The Metaphysical Foundations of Physical and Biological Science will be out early next year from Editiones Scholasticae. I’m looking forward to it and I’m sure many of our readers are too. For more info see his post.
The Department of Philosophy of Providence College, in collaboration with the Center for Catholic and Dominican Studies, announces the first in a new series of annual workshops dedicated to philosophy in the tradition of Aristotle. The workshops are intended to provide a venue for scholars and graduate students to present ongoing research and works-in-progress.
The first workshop, Metaphysics in the Tradition of Aristotle, will take place September 23–24, 2016 at Providence College. Invited presenters are:
Thérèse-Anne Druart (CUA)
Mary-Louise Gill (Brown)
Giorgio Pini (Fordham)
Jacob Rosen (Harvard)
The organizers welcome presentations of 25 minutes on Aristotle’s metaphysics and Aristotelian metaphysics in the Greek, Arabic, and Latin traditions. Papers on the modern reception or contemporary development of Aristotelian metaphysics are also welcome. We particularly encourage submissions from graduate students and early career scholars.
Abstracts of 500 words should be submitted to Fr. Philip Neri Reese, O.P., by April 15 at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
