    Half-day workshop of the European Hobbes Society

    University of Amsterdam, University Library (Vondelzaal), Singel 425, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

    On Monday 25 February 2019 the European Hobbes Society will organize a half-day workshop at the University of Amsterdam with Prof. Arash Abizadeh (McGill). Prof. Abizadeh is one of the world’s most prominent Hobbes scholars today. Earlier this year, Cambridge University Press published his monograph Hobbes and the Two Faces of Ethics — a rich and original study of Hobbes’s moral philosophy.

    The half-day workshop will start with lunch and end around 18:00. We plan to have four speakers in total, including Prof. Abizadeh. If you would like to present work-in-progress at this event, then please submit a title and short abstract to j.c.a.olsthoorn[a] before 26 December, 23:59. Decisions will be communicated shortly afterwards. We invite abstracts on any aspect of Hobbes’s thought, although priority will be given to papers on his ethics. As per usual, full papers will be circulated about a week in advance.

    All are welcome; registration is free. We are unfortunately not in the position to offer financial assistance to speakers or attendees. If you have any questions regarding this workshop, please do not hesitate to contact the organiser.
