5th Annual Stanford Conference: Ancient and Modern Metaethics

Fri February 16th - Sun February 18th 2024, All day
Stanford University
Building 40-42A on Friday
Buildings 90 and 110 on Saturday and Sunday

Although contemporary metaethics has flourished in recent years, it seems that ancient Greek metaethics has been neglected. This conference is designed to bring together philosophers working on contemporary metaethics and ancient philosophers working in ancient value theory in the hope that we can start a cross-discipline discussion and promote future research on this topic. This Stanford based conference will be paired with a sister conference in Berlin on the same topic taking place in June 2024.
