новини на празника

Честит празник, колеги!

В днешния празничен ден, когато най-старият наш университет има патронен празник, „отбелязван“ символично, както не е било и по време на двете световни войни през миналия век, все пак идват и добри новини. В седмиците, в които университетите, а сигурно и библиотеките отново ще бъдат непристъпни, някои издателства по света щедро отварят достъпа до свои най-нови издания. От проф. Габриеле Корнели днес дойде хубава вест. Отпечатан е и е свободен достъпът до:

Plato’s Timaeus. Proceedings of the Tenth Symposium Platonicum Pragensae https://brill.com/view/title/57430

Brill’s Plato Studies Series, Volume: 5
Editors: Chad Jorgenson, Filip Karfík, and Štěpán Špinka
Plato’s ‘Timaeus‘ brings together a number of studies from both leading Plato specialists and up-and-coming researchers from across Europe. The contributions cover a wide variety of topics, ranging from the literary form of the work to the ontology of sense perception and the status of medicine in Timaeus’ account. Although informed by a commitment to methodological diversity, the collection as a whole forms an organic unity, opening fresh perspectives on widely read passages, while shedding new light on less frequently discussed topics. The volume thus provides a valuable resource for students and researchers at all levels, whether their interest bears on the Timaeus as a whole or on a particular passage.

Chad Jorgenson, Ph.D. (2015), University of Fribourg, studied in Fribourg, Berlin, and Cambridge, and was a visiting researcher in Paris, Rome, Munich, and Pisa. He has published articles on Ancient Greek and Classical Arabic philosophy, including the Embodied Soul in Plato’s Later Thought(CUP, 2018)

Filip Karfík, Ph.D. (1996), Charles University in Prague, is Professor of Ancient Philosophy at the University of Fribourg. He has published monographs and articles on ancient and modern philosophy, including Die Beseelung des Kosmos (Saur, 2004).

Štěpán Špinka, Ph.D. (1998), Charles University in Prague, is Associate Professor of Ancient Philosophy at that university. He has published articles and monographs on Plato, including The Soul and Evil in the ‘Phaedo’ and The Soul and Beauty in the ‘Phaedrus’ (OIKOYMENH, 2009, in Czech).

Brill’s Plato Studies Series

Editors: Gabriele Cornelli and Gábor Betegh

Brill’s Plato Studies Series aims to gather together the most recent
and relevant contributions, in order to identify debates and trends
within the study of Plato and to provide a holistic understanding of
the wide range of issues related to Plato’s philosophy. Of special
significance for the series will be the examination of Plato’s
literary style and its relationship to his theoretical project as,
perhaps, one of the central problems in the study of Plato and Ancient
Philosophy as a whole. Even after two thousand years there is still no
consensus about why Plato expresses his ideas in such a unique style
and the series will aim to address this question. In addition, the
Series will warmly welcome contributions focusing on internal and
recurrent issues like the relation between myth and philosophy,
language, epistemology and ontology in Plato’s work. Special attention
will also be given to new interpretative challenges and recent
hermeneutical trends, which have emerged from the globalization of
current Platonic studies. These new approaches to Plato are likely to
change the future frame of Platonic scholarship, providing instruments
and renewed impulses for the generations of philosophers to come.

Другата новина е, че поради наложеното поредно заключване на образователните институции, традиционните годишни Четения на Асоциацията за развитие на университетското класическо образование, които тази година трябваше да са на тема Логос, догма, фантазия, се отлагат за пролетта на следващата година. Дано тя да е по-добра за всички!

Трета важна новина: Общото събрание на АРУКО ще се проведе дистанционно на 11 декември – така, както е свикано от Управителния съвет.

Ако има колеги, желаещи да станат членове на АРУКО, трябва да изпратят заявление за членство дотогава на адрес aduceorg@gmail.com, тъй като приемането на нови членове става само веднъж годишно по време на Общото събрание.

Още веднъж: Честит празник, колеги! Небесният ни покровител свети Климент Охридски да ни пази и закриля!

От името на организационния екип на Четенията, отложени за март 2021 г.
