The CEU Department of Philosophy cordially invites you to a conference

Ancient Metaphysics and its Modern Appropriations
International Summer Undergraduate Conference
on 27-28 August, 2015 starting from 9.30 am at CEU, Nádor utca 9.
Monument Building, Gellner Room

Ancient philosophers, through their incessant debates and discussions,
produced a vast array of highly complex competing conceptions about the
nature of reality, and its fundamental constituents. These debates, and
the metaphysical theories which were formulated in the course of these
exchanges, are highly interesting in their own right, but also in the
way they set the frame for later discussions, and provide the starting
points of competing conceptual frameworks for later developments. In our
International Summer Undergraduate Conference we invite participants to
explore this fascinating field: ancient metaphysical theories, and the
dynamic exchanges of ancient philosophers on these topics, as well as
the impact of ancient metaphysical discussions and theories on modern
and contemporary metaphysical debates.

The conference will be held in Budapest August 27-28. The conference 
intends to provide a forum for students pursuing their BA and MA studies 
at a recognized institution of higher education, interested in ancient and 
contemporary metaphysics, and their interrelationship.

Language of the conference is English. Participants at the conference will 
have 30 minutes to present their papers (the full text of the papers may 
be made available on the internet for the participants of the conference). 
This will be followed by comments given by invited readers in 10 minutes, 
and by another 20-25 minutes of discussion.- See more at:
