The International Association for Greek Philosophy and the Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy (USA) announce:

on the topic:

The Conference will be held in Greece in August (20-30) of 1997 on the Aegean island of Kos, the birthplace of Hippocrates.

The Conference will have the following aims:

1. To examine the relationship between philosophy and medicine in Greek thought from Pre-Socratic philosophy to the present (Pre-Socratic, Classical, Hellenistic, Byzantine and modern Greek Philosophy). The conference will explore the theoretical and operational hypotheses and principles common to philosophy and medicine as scientific endeavours.

2. To examine theories and principles that can help us to formulate, in a modern context, a value - system that meaningfully and appropriately addresses questions of health, disease and therapy, and the relationship between ourselves and the environment.

3. To develop a context for a dialogue between the theories of ancient medicine and philosophy and modern medical problems that call for philosophical consideration. The purpose is to hopefully pose problems and seek solutions that will be of benefit to all in this critical period where rapid advances in medical technology call for corresponding advances in theoretical conceptions of human life, health and well-being.

The Conference is consequently open to all those concerned with philosophy, medical theory and practice, specialists in Greek philosophy and Greek medical thought, depth psychologists, and theorists in psycho-analysis, history of Greek medicine, contemporary philosophy of medicine and medical ethics.

The main subject areas of the Conference are likely to be the following:

    1. Early Greek Philosophy and Medicine.The Hippocratic Corpus. The Hippocratic Oath and its contemporary relevance.
    2. Classical Greek Philosophy and Medicine.
    3. Hellenistic Philosophy and medical theories.
    4. Byzantine, Post - Byzantine and Modern Greek Philosophy and Medicine.
    1. The relationship of Medicine and Philosophy.
    2. Physical and mental health in Greek Thought and the modern world.
    3. The Ethics of medical practice in classical and post-classical Greece and the contemporary world.
    4. The influence of medical theories on classical Greek ethical and political speculation and on the philosophy of psychology.
    5. From Plato to Freud: Philosophy and psychoanalysis.
    6. Classical Greek concepts of the individual and contemporary debates in medical ethics and bioethics.
