Please send the abstract of your proposed lecture (on any topic relevant to early modern philosophy) to Dr. Andrea Sangiacomo (A.Sangiacomo@rug.nl) by November 1. The abstract must be no longer than 500 words, anonymized for the sake of blind reviewing and sent as a .docx or .doc file (please do not use pdf format).

The abstracts will be peer-reviewed and you will be notified of the review’s outcome by December 30. We will do our best to send the reviewers report to all participants in order to provide in any case a hopefully useful feedback on their abstract.

There are no fees for registration. Attendance is free and all listeners welcome. However, no financial help can be provided to support travel expenses and accommodation.

The Dutch Seminar is organized jointly by the Radboud University Nijmegen and the University of Groningen. The language of presentations and discussions alike is English.

Please note that the dates of the Spinoza and Proportion conference  have changed to 5-6 May 2015.

Spinoza and Proportion is the major academic conference of the AHRC Equalities of Wellbeing project. In this project we are investigating how a concept of equality based on geometrical proportion – a concept we take to be present in Spinoza’s philosophy and in architecture – can help us to understand individual and community wellbeing and to develop models for improving the equal distribution of wellbeing through housing design. For more information about the project, see http://www.equalitiesofwellbeing.co.uk

  • Proportions of individuals. For example, papers could address proportions of motion and rest, proportions of reason and imagination, relational properties, adequacy, parallelism, or part-whole relations.
