Everything in Everything interprets the key principles of Anaxagoras’s philosophy, arguing for its soundness and for the explanatory value of Anaxagoras’s innovative ideas in relation to the questions he had set out to address. The book places Anaxagoras’s view in dialogue with current concerns in metaphysics, regarding the question of whether reality is atomless or not, displaying relevance to ancient philosophy scholars and contemporary philosophers alike.

Author Anna Marmodoro (Professor of Philosophy, University of Oxford) will discuss the book and its themes with:

Simona Aimar (Lecturer in Philosophy, UCL)

Naoya Iwata (Research Fellow in Philosophy, Cambridge University)

This event will be chaired by Neil McLynn (Associate Professor in Later Roman History and Fellow in Classics, University of Oxford)

Free and all welcome. Lunch will be available from 12.30, with discussion from 13.00-14.00.
