ANNOUNCEMENT: THE BUCHAREST-PRINCETON SEMINAR
IN EARLY MODERN PHILOSOPHY
July 25-31, 2009 [NOTE CHANGE IN DATES]
The *Bucharest-Princeton Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy* is an
international annual meeting of scholars interested in various aspects of early
modern thought. The aim of the seminar is to create a stimulating environment
for discussing papers and ideas. Traditionally, the seminar has two
components: morning reading groups and afternoon discussions of work-in-
progress. This year, the topic for the morning sessions will be
Spinoza’s /Tractatus theologico-politicus/. In addition to this we are inviting
papers on all aspects of early modern philosophy/early modern science. The
languages of the seminar are English and French.
Invited speakers include: Daniel Garber (Princeton University), Roger Ariew
(University of South Florida), Ed Curley(University of Michigan), Frederic de
Buzon (Université de Strasbourg), Pina Totero (Rome), Martin Lin (Rutgers)
and Alan Gabbey (Barnard College/Columbia University). Others may be added
