Plato and Hesiod

G. R. Boys-Stones and J. H. Haubold (eds.), Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2009

Description

It hardly needs repeating that Plato defined philosophy partly by contrast with the work of the poets. What is extraordinary is how little systematic exploration there has been of his relationship with specific poets other than Homer. This neglect extends even to Hesiod, though Hesiod is of central importance for the didactic tradition quite generally, and is a major source of imagery at crucial moments of Plato’s thought. This volume, which presents fifteen articles by specialists on the area, will be the first ever book-length study dedicated to the subject. It covers a wide variety of thematic angles, brings new and sometimes surprising light to a large range of Platonic dialogues, and represents a major contribution to the study of the reception of archaic poetry in Athens.

L’Antiquité Classique

Louvain-la-Neuve: Association L’Antiquité Classique

Description

L’Antiquité Classique est une revue annuelle, de renommée internationale, spécialisée dans le domaine de l’Antiquité grecque et romaine (de la période préhellénique jusqu’à l’Antiquité tardive ou aux aspects de la Renaissance liés aux études antiques). Elle est éditée et diffusée par l’asbl L’Antiquité Classique avec, entre autres, un soutien financier de la Fondation universitaire et du Fonds de la Recherche scientifique – FNRS. La revue publie dans les langues usuelles de la recherche (anglais, français, allemand, italien, espagnol…) des contributions originales, soumises préalablement à l’avis d’un Comité de lecture (avec experts internationaux) : articles accompagnés d’un résumé bilingue, mélanges, varia (courts articles et notes de lecture), chroniques (review articles synthétisant sur un thème les recherches actuelles) et des recensions critiques de 300 à 400 monographies parues récemment et représentatives de la production annuelle de la discipline. Cette politique scientifique et ce concept éditorial, voulus dès 1932 par les fondateurs (tous les grands savants belges de l’époque), reçurent un accueil favorable et immédiat des plus grandes institutions internationales. L’Antiquité Classique regroupe de manière statutaire les Universités belges autour des « sciences de l’Antiquité » et est présente dans toutes les bibliothèques de référence de la discipline.

Durham University

Project Academy Workshop 3

Philip of Opus, Hermodorus of Syracuse, the Index Academicorum

Description and organization

Speakers, Respondents, and Chairs: Edoardo Benati (SNS-Pisa), Matilde Berti (Durham), Giulia Bonasio (Durham), Carlo Cacciatori (Durham), Giulia De Cesaris (KU Leuven), Pia De Simone (Trier), Eyjólfur Emilsson (Oslo), Kilian Fleischer (Wϋrzburg), Roberto Granieri (KU Leuven), Phillip Horky (Durham), Claudia Luchetti (Tϋbingen), Irmgard Männlein-Robert (Tϋbingen), Maria Cristina Mennutti (Durham), Anna Marmodoro (Durham), Federico Petrucci (Torino), Alessio Santoro (Lyon), Cesare Sinatti (Durham), Karl-Heinz Stanzel (Tϋbingen)

Project Academy is a partnership of scholars based in Durham and Tϋbingen, with the aim of developing a major initiative in the study of the Platonic tradition. At the heart of this project will be a series of critical editions, English and German translations, and commentaries of the fragments (and testimonies) of the members of Plato’s Early (or ‘Old’) Academy (ca. 380–266 BCE). Despite the historical importance of the Early Academy, the fragments of those philosophers who were its members are generally inaccessible: they have never been translated into English or German as a whole, and many of the most recent critical editions date from forty years ago and are difficult to obtain. The English-language editions will eventually be published in the new book series Cambridge Texts and Studies in Platonism (Cambridge University Press).

The third workshop in Durham, delayed from April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will focus on the methodological and philosophical problems related to three figures of significant interest to the history of Early Platonism: Plato’s amanuensis Philip of Opus, the metaphysician Hermodorus of Syracuse, and the historian/s who contributed to the Index Academicorum, the papyrus history of the Academy found in Herculaneum. Previous workshops treated Speusippus of Athens (Durham, February 2019) and Xenocrates of Chalcedon (Tϋbingen, November 2019). The final workshop in Tϋbingen (TBD) will focus on figures of importance to the later period of the Early Academy, including Polemo of Athens, Crantor of Soli, and Crates of Athens.

 If you would like to participate in this workshop or have other questions concerning Project Academy, please email the Durham co-organizer, Phillip Horky (Phillip.Horky@Durham.ac.uk) by Monday 13 June, 12pm GMT. We have limited funds to support early career scholars and postgraduate students to attend the workshop in person. If you are an early career scholar or postgraduate student and would like to be considered for funding support, please email Dr Horky with a description of why you would like to attend the workshop (200 words or less) and a short provisional budget of travel costs by Monday 13 June, 12pm GMT. If you would like to attend the workshop remotely, please email Dr Horky  by Monday 20 June, 12pm GMT, stating your wish to attend via Zoom.

Philosophia Antiqua

Studies in Ancient Philosophy

Editor-in-Chief F.A.J. de Haas

Philosophia Antiqua is the leading series specializing in books on Ancient Philosophy, covering the entire history of the subject from the Presocratics through Plato, Aristotle and the Stoics to the Neoplatonists of late Antiquity. The series has recently tended to emphasize areas that once used to be under-represented in the literature, for example Hellenistic philosophy, the skeptical tradition, Galen and other non-Platonist authors of later Antiquity, but this merely reflects a shifting focus in the field and is not a matter of deliberate policy. The over-riding concern of the series is to promote scholarship of the highest quality and originality, publishing work specifically oriented towards texts (editions, commentaries, translations), but also monographs, including both those that offer new readings of familiar – or less familiar – texts and those that explore the intersections between ancient and modern topics and approaches. Volumes are published in English, French and German. The series includes edited volumes that show a clear and coherent focus, but does not normally host Festschriften or Memorial volumes.

The series published an average of three volumes per year over the last 5 years.
