This summer school will offer a clear overview of different approaches to the study of the history of philosophy. Participants will be encouraged to reflect upon their own practices of interpretation, and develop a more thought-through method to approach philosophical texts of the past.

During the morning sessions there will be lectures by established scholars working in different areas of the history of philosophy. Some of these lectures will deal with the issue of methodology directly, while others will do so by means of a case study of recent research.

In the afternoons, there will be short presentations by participants, as well as round table discussions on selected texts. Participants who wish to present may either present a short paper on methodology or a case study of their own research. (See “More information”.)

The summer school aims to foster interactions between philosophers at different stages of their career, as well as between philosophers working in different fields.

This summer school is organized by the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Groningen in collaboration with the Dutch Research School of Philosophy ( It is part of the events of the Groningen Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Thought.
