Classical Philosophy Reading Group

Princeton graduate students discuss Aristotelean philosophy with their Greek counterparts in an informal, relaxed atmosphere.

“Aristotle, Politics book III”
University of the Aegean, Syros, Greece
Monday, June 20 to Friday, June 24, 2022

The 2022 summer workshop, “Aristotle, Politics book III”, will take place from Monday, June 20th to Friday, June 24th, at the University of the Aegean, Syros, Greece.

The general topic of the workshops is Aristotle’s philosophy of nature, very broadly conceived, but this year the group is tackling Aristotle’s Politics, for only the second time in the history of the workshop.

The program aims to give graduate students from different academic backgrounds the opportunity to collaborate closely and intensively with one another in an atmosphere that is more informal and relaxed than regular seminars during the academic year.

Ten graduate students and four faculty from Princeton will participate. The group will be joined by ten Greek graduate students and three faculty. Princeton students are paired with their Greek counterparts and encouraged to develop collaboratively an interpretation of the text under discussion and present it during the workshop. The workshop also aims to promote the collaboration of faculty members and students, helping the latter to hone the skills necessary for their own scholarly research.

Funding for this event has been generously provided by the Stanley J. Seeger ’52 Center for Hellenic Studies, and the Departments of Classics and Philosophy.
