Ethics in Translation with Richard Sorabji:
A Workshop for Graduate Students and Faculty

Led by:                 Professor Richard Sorabji, Wolfson College, Oxford
Location:              Centre for Ethics, Room 200 Larkin Building
Time:                     Thursday, October 17, 9-12:30
This half-day workshop will be based on Professor Sorabji’s book, Gandhi and the Stoics, accompanied by selected texts by Gandhi and the Stoic thinkers addressed in the book.  In addition to exploring the substantive themes of the volume by reading across texts, the workshop will also address the practice of bringing thinkers from radically different times and locations into conversation with one another.
The workshop is open to graduate students and faculty at the University of Toronto; others may address a request to participate to Melissa Williams (melissa.williams@utoronto.ca).
Pre-registration is required. To register, please visit http://ethics-utoronto-ca.eventbrite.ca/.
All participants should have a copy of Gandhi and the Stoics, and should have read the book well in advance of the workshop. (The UofT Bookstore is offering a special discount to workshop participants of 20% off the $35.00 cover price.  They are expecting a special shipment of the book in the first week of October. To purchase a discounted copy, go to the Information Desk on the 2nd floor of the bookstore, where copies will be set aside for workshop participants.)
Other readings will be posted on a website dedicated to the workshop, and information about access to the website will be circulated to registered participants.
