The Canadian Aristotle Society
Inaugural Canadian Aristotle Society Conference —
May 9, 10, and 11, 2018
For more information:
It is with great pleasure to announce the inaugural conference of the Canadian Aristotle Society
conference for May 9, 10, and 11, 2018, at the Dominican University College, Ottawa, ON. The theme of
this conference is the following: Aristotle: A Critic of Plato. Please submit a one-page abstract to Dr.
Mark Nyvlt at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is January 31st, 2018. Our first Keynote speaker
will be Dr. Thomas De Koninck.
The purpose of the bilingual Canadian Aristotle Society is to establish a Centre wherein the
themes of Aristotle, along with the Aristotelian tradition, are kept alive by way of either conferences or
eventually publications. The spirit of this Society will be speculative and classical in nature, though this
does not exclude the analytical and continental traditions. That the Faculty of Philosophy at the Dominican
University will house this Society can only enrich its mission to sustain the Aristotelian spirit by both the
Anglophone and Francophone communities in Canada and beyond. Our intention is to make this Society
into a dynamic Centre that will attract primarily Aristotelian scholars, but also scholars and interested parties
from various other disciplines, such as the classics, theology, politics, art, etc.
