What is Plato’s account of change? Which kinds of change does he accept? Are all changes ultimately spatial? Is any change relational? Do Forms change? Why is change one of the greatest kinds? Is there an instant of change? What could it mean that everything is change and nothing further? Which lesson can be learnt from the puzzle of the dice? The workshop ‘Plato on Change’ is a unique chance to discuss these and related questions on the metaphysics of change in Plato’s dialogues, to present scientific results on the topic in a friendly, stimulating, and international environment, and to boost further research on the topic.

For any questions related to the workshop please reach Paolo Gigli at [email protected]
