This conference advances the exchange of ideas between scholars who focus on Metaphysics or Philosophy of Biology in Aristotle and scholars who focus on Metaphysics or Philosophy of Biology in the contemporary scene. Its guiding motivation is that both directions of this exchange can be strengthened in conversation with each other. Of course, philosophical analysis focused primarily on historical exegesis or primarily on contemporary relevance has a key role to play in this dialogue; the exchange, after all, will only be as strong as its starting points. Exploring potential points of relevance between Aristotle’s Metaphysics and Philosophy of Biology and these disciplines as they are currently pursued, the conference centers on Aristotle's thought with an eye toward questions concerning its relevance within the contemporary world.
