The Dutch Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy brings together advanced students and established scholars to discuss the latest work in early modern philosophy, broadly conceived. Built on the success of the previous 2014–2017 editions, which gathered philosophers from all over the world, the Seminar offers workshop-style collaborations in order to stimulate scholarly exchange. The language of presentation and discussion is English.

Submission Topics

We welcome abstracts for talks on any topic related to early modern philosophy, broadly understood (roughly the period 1500–1800 CE). We are especially interested in presentations that discuss philosophical issues or works that have received less sustained scholarly attention, including, but not limited to: non-canonical authors and traditions, anonymous texts, and methodological reflections on doing Early Modern philosophy. Please submit abstracts (400 words max.) suitable for anonymous review in PDF.


The seminar hosts 10 papers selected through the call for papers, and 2 lectures by the keynote speakers. These activities occupy one full day (May 29) and one half day (May 30). In the afternoon of the second day, participants are invited to stay and contribute to a round table discussion focused on a relevant and forgotten early modern text. Details of the round table will be announced together with the final program.
