Gezocht: Promovendus (3-1, Utrecht)
Voor het Departement Filosofie en Religiewetenschap van de Faculteit Geesteswetenschappen zoekt de Universiteit Utrecht een Promovendus.
The PhD position (4 years) is independent of any overarching research project and is funded by the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Utrecht University. Proposals are invited that deal with the phenomenon of Platonism. The French philosopher Gilles Deleuze has argued that the task of contemporary philosophy is to ‘overthrow Platonism’ (renverser le platonisme). This may be true, provided that we know what ‘Platonism’ is. We therefore welcome proposals that contribute to a better understanding of this rich and complex phenomenon, preferably in Antiquity. The proposals can concentrate both on the ancient developments of Platonism, from Plato onwards (Plato, the Old and Hellenistic Academy, Middle Platonism and Neoplatonism), or on the construction of Platonism as a polemical target (Aristotle, Hellenistic philosophies for instance). Projects concerned with the modern reception of Plato will be also considered.
