See you there!

This workshop is devoted to create a friendly environment fostering discussions among philosophers working in metaphysics, both within different periods of the history of philosophy, and in contemporary metaphysics. The thought is that comparing and contrasting metaphysical views from different times promises to create fruitful and stimulating exchanges. Or so we believe.

Please come and join us! We look forward to having you there.

(Lunch and snack will be provided; there will also be a conference dinner at the end of the day.)
