We are happy to announce the 10th edition of the annual *Bucharest-Princeton Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy*. This year, the Seminar will also benefit from the support of the Nanovic Institute in European Studies, University of Notre Dame. The Seminar gathers together scholars interested in various aspects of early modern thought. Its aim 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. The languages of the seminar are English and French. This year, we invited contributions on the topic:
Non-Mechanical Philosophies in the Seventeenth Century
Invited speakers include: Peter Anstey (Otago, New Zealand), Daniel Garber (Princeton), Theo Verbeek (Utrecht), Koen Vermeir (CNRS, Paris).
There will also be a number of invited students from the Bucharest and Notre Dame Universities.
The Seminar will take place in Bran, a small resort near Brasov, in Transylvania. It will be hosted in a small, friendly Bed and Breakfast (single or double rooms). The participation fee is 150 EUR for faculty and 70 EUR for students (covering accommodation with breakfast).
Call for papers closed.
