Posting has been difficult lately – apologies! It’s been a torrent of work at the beginning of the academic year in Durham, including talks in Milan (on Pseudo-Archytas’ On Wisdom) and Venice (more on Aristotle on Philolaus), plus another half-talk in Durham at the Ancient Republics Workshop (Part 1) this week, and another talk in Milan in mid-December at the second part of the Durham-Milan workshop on Platonism and Hellenistic Philosophy (on ancient ‘Italian’ philosophy). Jeez, I just can’t keep still.
Since the last post, several reviews of Plato and Pythagoreanism have surfaced (one by Federicco Petrucci (Wurzburg) in the Journal of the History of Philosophy, another by Joseph Miller (Illinois Institute of Technology) in Hopos: the Journal of the International Society for the History of Philosophy and Science, another by Michael Weinman (Bard College Berlin) in Archai: Revista de Estudos sobre as Origens do Pensamento Ocidental, and some reactions by Carl Huffman (Depauw) in his ‘Pythagoreanism’ entry on the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Happy to see that the work is generating debate, and also happy to announce that the book will be coming out in paperback next year – Oxford’s even allowing me to make some minor corrections!
