Extending New Narratives: Opening Discussions

Published on March 1, 2022 Updated on March 1, 2022

"Opening Discussions" is an online conference that will take place on 4th & 5th March 2022.

Our intellectual past is full of people whose philosophical thought has been discounted through prejudice and condescension in their own times or by the tellers of the history of philosophy. This Extending New Narratives/ Pour de nouveaux récits en histoire de la philosophie (ENN) Partnership’s international online conference aims to open discussions exploring the philosophies of some of these historically neglected figures and jumpstart efforts to retell the history of philosophy.

It features six distinct panels exploring the works of a set of marginalized philosophers in different periods and places. The panels are anchored by a presentation, followed by two discussants to help to get the conversation started.
