Spinoza workshop

On June 8-9, 2011, with support of Ghent University's Doctoral School, the Philosophy & Moral Sciences Department at Ghent University, is hosting a (Post-)Doctoral workshop on Spinoza.

The workshop will explore Spinoza's philosophy and its reception in context. We are especially eager to explore ways in which Spinoza's political and metaphysical views  inform each other. Susan James (Birkbeck), Beth Lord (Dundee), and Willem Lemmens (Antwerp) have agreed to lend their expertise to the workshop. 

We welcome paper proposals from PhD or Post-doctoral students who wish to participate in the workshop. Please send an abstract (no more than 500 words) and a brief CV to Eric Schliesser (Nescio2@yahoo.com) by May 1. Participation is free, but spaces are limited.
