Reading Group of "De Spiritu" (ps. Aristotle)

23-25 Feb 2012

On February 23rd-25th we shall hold an intensive reading group of the Ps. Aristotelian treatise De Spiritu. This is a continuation of a reading-session held in Zagreb in November 2011, which concerned chapters 1-4 of the treatise. The aim of these meetings is to focus on the contents of this work, rather than on its dating, and to try and establish the theories of its author and the relation to earlier and contemporary theories and ideas.

  • Prior registration and preparation is essential.
