Πλατωνικές Επιστολές

Το Πανεπιστημιακό Κολέγιο του Λονδίνου (UCL), σε συνεργασία με το Πανεπιστήμιο του Leeds, οργανώνουν στο κεντρικό Λονδίνο από Δευτέρα 2 Σεπτεμβρίου μέχρι Τετάρτη 4 Σεπτεμβρίου τ.έ., ένα πολύ ενδιαφέρον Συνέδριο αφιερωμένο στο θέμα του τίτλου.

Σύμφωνα με τη σχετική ανακοίνωση:

The letters attributed to Plato have had a colourful history. Although now almost universally regarded as spurious, they nevertheless hold an important place in the history of both the Platonic tradition and the wider Greek epistolary tradition. Circulating with the Platonic corpus, they have enjoyed a wide readership and prompted a fascinating variety of responses. The question of authenticity has, perhaps unfortunately, tended to dominate modern scholarship.

This international and interdisciplinary conference aims to move beyond the question of authenticity and to consider the varied roles of the Platonic Letters within the philosophical and literary tradition. It brings together experts in Platonic philosophy and epistolary literature from the UK, the USA and Europe to discuss the impact and reception of the Letters throughout antiquity. Topics to be discussed include the Letters’ philosophical relevance and influence on later philosophical works, literary readings of individual letters, the arrangement of the collection, and the question of their importance for later composers of literary and fictional letters.
