The theme of the conference is Perception, Reason and Desire in Ancient and Medieval Philosophy. We’re pleased to announce as keynote speakers professor Thomas Johansen (Oslo) and professor Cecilia Trifogli (Oxford).

The conference aims to explore the different abilities (or powers) of the human soul. How do the different ancient schools understand perceptual, cognitive and appetitive aspects of human psychology and how do they argue for their theories? What is their influence in the medieval debate and what are the particularly medieval developments? The aim of the conference is to attract graduate students working both in ancient and in medieval philosophy to facilitate a broader discussion on these themes.

The conference will be held in connection with the Nordic Network in History of Philosophy Workshop exploring similar themes as the Graduate Conference. The participants have an opportunity, if they so wish, of attendng both events. Attending the conference provides opportunities for graduate students in history of philosophy to meet and make connections with Nordic scholars.
