    Research Training Opportunity: Human Nature and the Construction of the State - Hobbes and Spinoza

    The History of Philosophy Programme will welcome Beth Lord from the University of Aberdeen as its next visitor in August. She will  teach the postgraduate seminar “Spinoza and contemporary continental political philosophy”.  This course puts into practice a new research-focused teaching format: students have the opportunity to closely engage with the research of international experts who present their work at a one-day workshop at Sydney University. The course will prepare them for this event and also give them the chance to write and present comments in relation to our speakers' papers. The seminar will be taught as a compact seminar in 5 x 3 h sessions in the week from 18 to 22 of August; the workshop will be on 26th of August.
