Although there’s little doubt that Aristotle’s thought rather poorly of Plato’s Forms, it is far from clear whether and to what extent he did justice to his and his followers’ endeavours to prove that they exist. This is particularly true of Aristotle’s criticism in Metaphysics A, 9 (also to be read, with minor variations, in Metaphysics M, 4), which – being at its core a checklist of arguments and related shortcomings – leaves a lot to speculation. Whence the great deal of interest and discussion a semi-canonical source, namely Aristotle’s Peri ideôn, has given rise to amongst readers eager to assess what precisely Aristotle took Plato’s and other Platonists’ failures to be.

As a follow-up and continuation of an ongoing research seminar at the University Charles de Gaulle (http://periideon.hypotheses.org) and an International Symposium to be held in Lille (16th - 17th June 2016), Michel Crubellier and Leone Gazziero invite submissions of chapters proposals for a book publication on Aristotle’s lost work on Ideas.

Interested Authors from all academic levels are invited to submit a 500-1000 words abstract whose emphasis may be philological (textual issues are all the more important since, as is well known, relevant material has been handed down through a multi-layered sources’ transmission), exegetical (as is also well known, no consensus has been reached so far about precisely what arguments Aristotle was targeting and on what account precisely did he fault them), or both (it would go against the editors’ better judgment to present the two approaches as mutually exclusive).

Proposals, written either in English or French, should be prepared for blind review by removing all identifying information. Author’s name and institutional affiliation will be provided in the email or as a separate cover page.
Submissions must be sent – no later than September, the 30th, 2016 – as .pdf or .docx attachments to

leone.gazziero@univ-lille3.fr

All queries may be directed to the same email address.
