The Athens Philosophy Seminar (APS) is a course held every summer which aims introduce students to graduate level work and expose them to the latest research in philosophy. Each APS focuses on one philosophical topic and culminates into a week-long engagement with a distinguished philosopher, who will be presenting their latest research on the topic.
The topic of this year’s Athens Philosophy Seminar (APS) is Philosophy & Film, and the distinguished guest is Professor Robert Pippin from the University of Chicago; he has contributed to the study of Kant, Hegel, modernism, political philosophy, self-consciousness, freedom, but also literature and philosophy and film and philosophy. Robert Pippin will give five lectures with the title: Film as a Moving Image of Skepticism.
The Philosophy & Film seminar to be held from May 28 to June 23, 2018 is the second in its series, intended for outstanding undergraduate students who are entertaining the prospect of a graduate career in philosophy. The aim is to introduce students to graduate level work and expose them to the latest research. Each APS focuses on one philosophical topic and culminates into a week-long engagement with a distinguished philosopher, who will be presenting their latest research on the topic. Students who do not have the opportunity to take high-level courses at their own institutions are especially encouraged to apply.

A new addition to this year’s summer courses offered at CYA was Philosophy of Action and Knowledge, the first in our series of CYA Athens Philosophy Seminars led by Dr. Evgenia Mylonaki. This year’s APS was divided into three parts. In the first part of the seminar, students studied the works of Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Locke, Hume, Wittgenstein, Davidson, Anscombe, and contemporary philosophers of action and knowledge.
If you’re an avid philosopher, try walking in Plato’s steps (literally!) as you examine life and seek meaning while gazing over the view of Athens’ Parthenon. Studying philosophy in Greece is a no brainer! Greece is a fascinating place to study religion as well, being a predominantly Orthodox country with historical influences from Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. You can investigate the relation of ancient Greek myth and religion through Homer and Hesiod, or try visiting the temple of Mieza where Aristotle taught Alexander the Great. The possibilities to ponder life’s greatest questions are endless as an international student in a place like Greece.
Dr. Evgenia Mylonaki CYA Professor of Philosophy, has had a paper recently published in the esteemed European Journal of Philosophy.
The paper titled: Action as the Conclusion of Practical Reasoning; The Critique of a Rödlian Account takes up the question of whether and in what sense action might be the conclusion of practical reasoning and argues against the answer provided by Sebastian Rödl’s account of practical reasoning. The online publication is currently on the Journal’s home page.
