Rationalism, Platonism and God: An all-day Symposium on early modern philosophy

The Dawes Hicks symposium for 2004, hosted by the British Academy, will be on central themes in the thought of the three major 'rationalists', Descartes, Spinoza and Leibniz, relating them to the wider philosophical and theological tradition.

The main speakers will be John Cottingham, Robert M. Adams and Michael Ayers. All three speakers will direct their papers towards the analysis of the philosophical positions and motives of the authors discussed, in the light of their intellectual context. There will also be contributions from prepared discussants: Dr Douglas Hedley, Cambridge University, Dr Sarah
Hutton, Middlesex University, and Dr Maria Rosa Antognazza, King's College, London.
