First Principles, Cause, and Explanation in Ancient Philosophy

University of Cambridge, Faculty of Classics - April 12-13, 2013

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 13 janvier 2013



Attempts to determine and employ ‘first principles' or archai seem to dominate much of ancient philosophy. For example, we find in the writings of the Presocratics the positing of primary entities to account for the features of the universe. In the works of Plato and Aristotle archai are crucial for not only their natural philosophy but also for their metaphysical and epistemological commitments. We welcome abstracts from graduate students and early career researchers for papers of approximately 3000-3500 words that investigate archai, cause, and explanation in ancient philosophy. Papers may focus on any period of ancient philosophy from the Presocratics to Philoponus. Diachronic studies will also be considered.
