      Being or Good. Metamorphoses of Neoplatonism.
      The conference with the official patronage of the International Society for
      Research on Medieval Philosophy (SIEPM).

      Dear Colleagues,
      Chair of the Ancient and Medieval Philosophy at the Catholic University of
      Lublin (Prof. E. Zielinski, prof. A. Kijewska),
      The Institute of the Research on Christian Antiquity (Prof. S. Longosz),
      The Institute of Medieval Culture (Prof. S. Wielgus)

      organise an international conference devoted to ancient and medieval
      Neoplatonism, at 7-10 October 2003.

      It is not necessary to emphasise the importance and place of Neoplatonism in
      culture, especially in philosophy, including Christian philosophy. It is
      enough to point to the dynamic development of research on Neoplatonism in
      Europe as well as in America. Polish scholars have also been interested in
      Neoplatonism for a long time, and most recently they have given it their
      special attention. We hope that this conference will help to enliven and
      intensify these studies.

      The question of the being-goodness relation has been present in
      philosophical thought since its beginning, and obtained its particularly
      keen expression in Neoplatonism. This very problem formed one of the
      principal subjects of discussion in the Lublin philosophical circle at the
      Catholic University. Through this conference, we intend to bring our
      research in this field closer to the leading international workshops, as
      well as give it a historic-philosophical shift.
