Rupert Sparling


BA (Hons), University of Oxford


I read Classics at Oxford University and specialize in Ancient Philosophy. I focus on Ancient Ethics and have recently written papers on the role of intrinsic value and comparative value in ancient philosophical texts, the so-called ‘Two-Worlds’ problem for Plato’s epistemology, Platonic eschatology, and function arguments. I also co-ordinate the Ethics and Politics, Ancient and Modern (EPAM) workshop for Professors Chris Bobonich and Josiah Ober.
