Dutch Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy IV

Faculty of Philosophy, University of Groningen (NL), 18-19 February 2017

We are pleased to announce the fourth meeting of the Dutch Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy.

Built on the success of the previous 2014, 2015 and 2016 editions, which brought together scholars from all over Europe and North America, this Seminar aims to bring together advanced students and established scholars working on early modern philosophy (broadly conceived, ranging from the later scholastics to Kant). The intention is to come to a workshop-type of collaboration in order to stimulate scholarly exchange in our field.

The Dutch Seminar is part of the activities of the Groningen Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Thought (www.rug.nl/gcmemt) based at the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Groningen, and of the OZSW Study Group in Early Modern Philosophy. The language of presentation and discussion is English. Please note that this year the Seminar takes place during the weekend (Saturday 18th February whole day, Sunday 19th February until 1pm).

Keynote speakers:

Prof Jeffrey McDonough (Harvard University)

Dr Emily Thomas (University of Groningen / Durham University)
