The final conference of the “Year of Antigones” program sponsored by DePaul University will take place on May 15-17, 2008. Click here for Year of Antigones Program.
According to the Year of Antingones website:
“The Year of Antigones is a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, and community-wide series of events focused on the figure of Antigone, the tragic heroine of Sophocles’ play of the same name, and the various historical and contemporary appropriations of this figure. These events are organized by the Department of Philosophy at DePaul University, but will take place at various colleges, universities, theaters, performance spaces, and other venues throughout Chicagoland during the 2007-2008 academic year.”
Congratulations to Claudia Baracchi for the publication of her book, Aristotle’s Ethics as First Philosophy, with Cambridge University Press.
The publisher’s description of the book reads as follows:
In Aristotle’s Ethics as First Philosophy, Claudia Baracchi demonstrates the indissoluble links between practical and theoretical wisdom in Aristotle’s thinking. Referring to a broad range of texts from the Aristotelian corpus, Baracchi shows how the theoretical is always informed by a set of practices, and, specifically, how one’s encounter with phenomena, the world, or nature in the broadest sense, is always a matter of ethos.
Claudia was the 2008 host of the Annual Independent meeting of the Ancient Philosophy Society at the New School in New York. She is currently Associate Professor of Philosophy at the New School.
