To reflect on the philosophical method is as old as the philosophical practice itself. While well-known methods such as the Socratic elenchus or dialectic have received a lot of attention in the history of philosophy, there is a host of methodological patterns and strategies that have been relatively neglected. In order to explore such neglected tools, we are organizing “The Ancient Philosopher’s Toolkit” conference, to be held jointly at the Ruhr Universität Bochum and the Technische Universität Dortmund, on November 16-17, 2023.
