Aristotle, Kant, and the Stoics

The Program in Classics, Philosophy and Ancient Science at the University of Pittsburgh announces a conference supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities to be held 18-20 March 1994.

The conference will pair scholars working on ancient (Aristotelian or Stoic) ethics with scholars working on modern (Kantian) ethics in order to re-evaluate the traditional view that ancient 'teleological' ethics and modern 'deontological' ethics are fundamentally opposed.

Speakers include:

John McDowell
Barbara Herman
Julia Annas
Christine Korsgaard
Jennifer Whiting
Allen Wood
Terence Irwin
Stephen Engstrom
James Allen
John Cooper
Jerome Schneewind.

The full program has been posted in the Philosophy Dept. (events elsewhere on the 9th floor bulletin board) and in the Classics Dept.
