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.

We invite abstracts for a workshop on Plato’s metaphysics of change September 15-17, 2023.

Submitted abstracts must be 500-800 words and prepared for blind review. The format should be PDF and submitted [email protected] Acceptance will be notified by email one month after the deadline. Accommodation and travel costs of the two selected speakers will be covered.

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