Aristotle’s logic is often treated as though it falls into two quite distinct parts: the deductive syllogistic system, discussed in the Prior and Posterior Analytics and the dialectical system, discussed in the Topics and Sophistical Refutations. Each of these parts has received sustained, independent attention: logicians have done much to articulate the structure of Aristotle’s syllogistic, while commentators have seen Aristotle’s dialectic as key to his whole philosophical enterprise.
This conference aims to examine the (putative) dialectical grounding for Aristotle’s logical theories in general (in particular, but not exclusively, syllogistic), and thus to emphasize the coherence and continuity of his logical writings by taking multi-agent dialogical interactions such as dialectic as the founding concept.

In autumn 2013, a conference on rhetoric will take place at the University of Saarland and the University Luxemburg. This conference will be international and multidisciplinary. The central theme of the symposium is ‘Rhetoric in Europe’. At the same time, we examine what is European in rhetoric and what is rhetorical in Europe. Because 2013 is an anniversary year in the history of rhetoric, the conference will be held in 2013. Presumably, 387 AC, 2400 years ago, Isocrates founded his school of rhetoric and philosophy.
Speakers and participants will be scholars from all of Europe, the Arab world, Israel, and the Americas.
