The 2018 Cambridge Graduate Conference in Ancient Philosophy: Law and Order in Ancient Philosophy -


Law and order were among the central questions debated in Antiquity, permeating nearly all branches of ancient philosophy from metaphysics, natural philosophy, and cosmology to ethics, political theory, and aesthetics. This topic is open to a large number of approaches and can be related to various disciplines in the humanities, such as ancient history, literature, and legal theory – for which reason we hope to welcome students and junior academics throughout the humanities, thus creating an interdisciplinary dialogue across various fields in the study of classical antiquity and beyond.
