In Anticipation of Razvan Ioan's defence of his PhD Thesis

“No one has yet determined what the body can do”:
The Turn to the Body in Spinoza and Nietzsche.

To be held on 1 November 13:45 - 14:30 hours in the Academy Building,
we would like to announce a Mini-Symposium on Love (of Live) in Spinoza and Nietzsche.

The symposium will be introduced by a series of questions on the Love of Life and Life-Affirmation in Spinoza and Nietzsche, to be presented by Prof. Simon May (King’s College, London).


There will then be three 15 minute presentations:

* Piet Steenbakkers (Prof. Emer., Utrecht): Spinoza on Love and a Life Worth Living

* Herman Siemens (Leiden): Of Love and Hatred in two short texts by Nietzsche

* Razvan Ioan (Leiden): Love of Life and Life-Affirmation in Spinoza and Nietzsche

The presentations will be followed by a roundtable discussion of the theses and questions raised.

All students and staff are welcome!
