The study of Hellenistic philosophy has flourished in recent decades, with increasing attention going to the reconstruction of the doctrines and arguments of the ancient Greek and Roman Stoics. Neo-Stoicism has also emerged as a significant player in cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness therapies. However, though the situation differs from country to country, on the whole the breadth of continental interpretations has not been well integrated into either the scholarly or the therapeutic mainstream. Our goal is not simply to map how continental authors have received Stoicism, but rather to consider how continental approaches can enrich our understanding of Stoicism’s theoretical, ethical, therapeutic and political importance in antiquity and today, and how renewed engagement with Stoic texts and scholarship can enrich continental philosophy.

From August 18-20 2016 we will hold the second workshop of the international research network, Continental Stoicisms: Beyond Reason and Wellbeing. This workshop will focus on the German tradition since Wilhelm Dilthey, which we take to include not only Germanophone philosophers in Europe (e.g. Friedrich Nietzsche, Edmund Husserl, Walter Benjamin, Martin Heidegger, Hans Blumenberg, Peter Sloterdijk), but also émigrés and philosophers in other countries working in the same broad tradition (e.g. Hannah Arendt, Leo Strauss, Hans Jonas). Furthermore, we draw no firm distinction between scholarship and philosophy, so that scholarly work on Stoicism by (e.g.) Franz Brentano, Ludwig Stein, Günter Abel, or Max Pohlenz could also be relevant. However, we are not interested in papers that focus on the historical correctness of interpretations. Rather, our focus is on exploring how dialogue between these traditions can be poetically and philosophically interesting.

The venue will be the University of Miami (Florida, USA). We invite abstracts of no more than 400 words for papers of 40 minutes delivery time, which should be emailed to Kurt Lampe at clkwl(at)bristol.ac.uk by Sunday March 13. Abstracts may be in English or German. You may direct any questions about the suitability of topics to the same address. Submissions from graduate students are most certainly welcome.

Through the generosity of the Arts and Humanities Research Council of the United Kingdom, we are able to offer financial assistance to any speakers who do not have travel budgets at their own institutions.
