Call for Papers

Hegel and Ancient Philosophy


the 24th Biennial Meeting of the Hegel Society of America


Concordia University
(Montreal, Quebec, Canada)

November 4-6, 2016

Deadline for submission of papers:
January 31, 2016

The Hegel Society’s 2016 Biennial Meeting will examine the relation of Hegel’s thought to ancient philosophy, including Late Antiquity and non-Western philosophies of the ancient world. Papers may address the topic in a variety of ways. They may take a historical approach covering, for example, Hegel’s treatment of ancient philosophy (in the Lectures on the History of Philosophy, and elsewhere), or the influence of ancient philosophy on Hegel. Papers may also approach the topic systematically, dealing with aspects of Hegelian philosophy in relation to ancient thought, or vice versa. Papers may also treat current or perennial debates concerning Hegel’s relation to ancient philosophy.

Submissions are limited to 6,000 words. Later adjustments must remain within this limit. Submissions must be formatted for blind review and accompanied by an abstract of no more than 300 words. They must be complete essays; draft proposals are not acceptable. All papers should be in English. Although papers presented at meetings of the Hegel Society of America are usually published as a collection, publication cannot be guaranteed. By submitting a paper, however, the author agrees to reserve publication for HSA proceedings if the paper is accepted for the program, and if the program is accepted for publication.

If you plan to submit a paper, or simply to attend, please be aware that you will need a valid passport to travel to Canada. If your passport needs to be renewed, we advise you to take care of this without delay.

Please send papers to:
Glenn A. Magee, Program Chair
