Presentation

Under the aegis of the European Research Council (ERC) funded project “Animals in Philosophy of the Islamic World,” a conference will be held on May 18-20, 2023 at the LMU Munich, on the topic of Animals in Greek, Arabic, and Latin Philosophy. Featured speakers who have already agreed to come include Sophia Connell, Silvia Donati, Racha El Omari, and Cecilia Muratori.

We welcome proposals for papers on any topic relevant to animals and philosophy in ancient Greek and Roman and medieval (Byzantine, Islamic, or Latin Christian) philosophy. Relevant topics could include, but are not limited to, Aristotelian zoology and its reception, theories of animal soul and cognition, views on how animals should be treated, and ideas about animals in medicine and other sciences.

Hotel costs, and travel costs up to 300 EUR, will be covered for all speakers.

We particularly encourage proposals from junior academics.

A collected volume, to be edited by Peter Adamson and published in the de Gruyter series Philosophy in the Islamic World in Context, is planned on the topic of philosophy of animals in the Islamic world. Contributing a written piece to the volume is optional, however, and not a requirement for speaking at the event.
