on the Hill

[] [English]

You are invited to a series of regular meetings in Thessaloniki for the presentation and discussion of philosophical work in progress, normally of graduate/research level. Presentations and discussions take place in Greek and English, whatever seems suitable.

The meetings are open to a wide range of philosophical issues and approaches. We envisage academically serious and open minded engagement with philosophical matters and readyness for heated discussion and criticism. Anyone interested is welcome to participate and to suggest papers. While the main body of papers is expected to come from within the wider Thessaloniki area, visitors are very welcome.

Information about the meetings (and other philosophical events in town) is distributed via an e-mail list. If you want to receive occasional information or spread the news about an event you organised, please send a note to

We normally meet on Mondays, 19:30-21:00 every two weeks (see below) at the American College of Thessaloniki (ACT ), (Anatolia College, North Campus), Bissell Library, 1st floor, Faculty Development Room.
