News: 2022-12-27: Somtime in January or February 2023 this forum will go into hibernation ("Maintenance mode"). Maybe the yet to be found successor to Thomas Ricklin, or my own successor (also yet to be found) will reactivate the forum sometime in the future. (hck)

Cagliari 2012-06: Renaissance Platonism

No, I myself, I have not changed my views on this, I still do not believe in the existence of "Renaissance Platonism", but I have received this CFP via the FICINO email distribution list:

With this message I would like to invite members of this list to submit proposals on Renaissance Platonism for a panel at the ISNS (International Society for Neoplatonic Studies) tenth Conference, which will be held in Cagliari (Italy) from 20 to 23 June 2012.

The panel, which I will chair together with Dr. Guido Giglioni (The Warburg Institute), will explore the influence of Platonism and Neoplatonism in fourteenth- and fifteenth-century Europe and the role played by Renaissance Platonism in the history of Platonic thought. Possible areas of focus may include: the relationship between Platonism and Christianity – as evidenced in the writings of many Renaissance thinkers such as Nicholas of Cusa, Pico della Mirandola, Marsilio Ficino and Leo Haebreus –; the role of  Ficino’s translations of and commentaries on Plato, Plotinus and other Platonic philosophers; the influence of Renaissance interpretations of Neoplatonism on later thought as well as contributions on key early-modern Platonists.

For more information about the ISNS see : http://www.isns.us/

If interested, please send your abstracts (1 page maximum) to both Guido (guido.giglioni@sas.ac.uk) and myself (annacorriasl@gmail.com) before 24 February 2012.
