Ancient Routes to Happiness

25-27 October 2012

The 13th Unisa Classics Colloquium theme is deliberately formulated in broad terms so as to encourage a wide range of approaches to and perspectives on ancient ‘happiness’ and variants. Apart from the obvious importance of eudaimonia as philosophical telos, the organising committee is interested in treatments of and assumptions regarding happiness in other sources from antiquity: religious, literary, historiographical, medical, epigraphical, etc. The Classics Colloquium focuses on Greco-Roman antiquity, but contributions from other ancient cultures are also welcome.

The Unisa Classics Colloquium is hosted annually by the Department of Classics and World Languages at the University of South Africa, Pretoria.
