Change and changemakers are a central focus of much ancient
philosophy. This workshop will seek to identify ideas from these ancient
discussions which have salience to our contemporary philosophical
debates concerning change, suggesting how these ideas may advance
our current thinking.


This workshop is a collaborative initiative of the Change and
Changemakers Network (
Siegen) together with the Mereology of
Potentiality Project (
Oxford).


Speakers will include Anna Marmodoro (Durham University), Helen
Steward (
Leeds University), Niko Strobach (Universität Münster) and
John Pemberton (
LSE).


Researchers wishing to present a paper to the workshop are requested
to send a proposed abstract to
ccm@uni-siegen.de no later than
31/12/20 for consideration.


Participation is open to all researchers with an interest in these areas.
To register please email
ccm@uni-siegen.de.
