Working Group in Ancient Philosophy

WGAP organizes workshops each semester designed to support the interdisciplinary study of ancient philosophy at Yale. The usual format is a paper presentation followed by a period of open discussion.

Knowledge of classical languages is not required to follow the presentations and participate in the discussions; all original texts are discussed in English translations provided by the speakers. Sponsored by the Whitney Humanities Center. For more information, please contact Daniel Ferguson (, Allison Piñeros Glasscock ( or Emily Kress (
