OCHS Library

Thursday, 14 February 2019 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Cosmologies across ancient cultures describe the shape and structure of the universe, its origins and functioning - but when do these ‘myths’ become ‘metaphysics’? This symposium will bring together scholars of diverse ancient cultures in a ‘global’ conversation exploring the path from ‘Cosmology’ and ‘Myth’, to ‘Philosophy’ and ‘Metaphysics’. Jessica Frazier, Christopher Marlow, Lea Cantor and others will explore cases from Greece, India, Egypt and beyond.
