Symposium Aristotelicum 2022

The 22nd Symposium Aristotelicum: Aristotle’s Categories.

The Symposium Aristotelicum is a three-yearly symposium of proven Aristotle’s researchers. The conference series was founded in 1957 by the Aristotelian scholars Ingemar Düring, from Sweden, and Gwilym Ellis Lane Owen, from Great Britain. It is a closed event organized by experts, which can only be attended by invitation from the scientific committee. Since 1969 every symposium has been dedicated to a specific work by Aristotle. 

The 22nd Symposium Aristotelicum should have taken place in 2020, but it was postponed to 2022 because of Covid-19. It is organized by Professor Panos Dimas and the Department of Philosophy at the University of Oslo. The Symposium takes place in Norway for the first time. Its present topic is Aristotle’s Categories.
