Details

Shakespeare: The Philosopher will take place at the University of Hertfordshire on 12-13 September 2014.

Shakespeare’s work is rich in philosophical themes, addressing questions in areas including metaphysics, ethics, philosophy of mind, and social and political philosophy. Meanwhile, issues concerning how Shakespeare’s works manage to represent what they do are ripe for consideration in aesthetics, with the plays raising questions about the nature of representation, fiction, interpretation, literature and history, tragedy and comedy. Shakespeare: The Philosopher aims to explore the importance of philosophy in understanding Shakespeare, and the importance of Shakespeare to issues in philosophy.

Speakers include:

Miranda Anderson (Edinburgh) Sophie Battell (Cardiff) Katie Brennan (Temple University) Gregory Currie (York) Maximilian de Gaynesford (Reading) Adele-France Jourdan (K.U. Leuven) Derek Matravers (Open University) Christopher Norris (Cardiff) Tzachi Zamir (Hebrew University of Jerusalem)

The conference is open to all. Registration is free. To register, please send an email to: shakespeareandphilosophy@gmail.com
