This conference featured a number of panels devoted to the work of eminent Sartre scholars: Ronald Aronson, David Detmer, Thomas R. Flynn and Ronald Santoni. We are pleased to present articles based on the papers presented at those panels in this issue.

Continental Stoicisms: Beyond Reason and Wellbeing

From August 18-20 2016 we will hold the second workshop of the international research network, Continental Stoicisms: Beyond Reason and Wellbeing. The goal of this project is not simply to map how continental authors have received Stoicism, but rather to consider how continental approaches can enrich our understanding of Stoicism’s theoretical, ethical, therapeutic and political importance in antiquity and today, and how renewed engagement with Stoic texts and scholarship can enrich continental philosophies.
