About the topic

Built on the success of the previous 2014, 2015 and 2016 editions, which brought together scholars from all over Europe and North America, this Seminar aims to bring together advanced students and established scholars working on early modern philosophy (broadly conceived, ranging from the later scholastics to Kant). The intention is to come to a workshop-type of collaboration in order to stimulate scholarly exchange in our field.

  • Prof Jeffrey McDonough (Harvard University)
  • Dr Emily Thomas (University of Groningen / Durham University)
