The Aristotle Reading Party is both a graduate conference and a reading event. In our six reading sessions, each introduced by a distinguished scholar, we will discuss the dichotomy of energeia (actuality) and dunamis (potentiality) informed by a close reading of Metaphysics Theta 1-10. We will finish with a final session on Physics Gamma 1-3, in which change is defined in terms of energeia and dunamis.

The event will take place from 29 April to 1 May 2013 at the Burn House in Angus (
