In memoriam
En memoria de JOAQUÍN LOMBA FUENTES, fundador de  SOFIME
  
El pasado día 5 de marzo ha muerto Joaquín Lomba Fuentes, Catedrático Emérito de la Universidad de Zaragoza, nacido en esta ciudad en 1932. Dos días antes, acababa de cumplir la edad de ochenta y seis años. A él le debemos la Sociedad que hoy nos ampara a cuantos nos dedicamos a la Filosofía Medieval en la Península Ibérica y en parte de Latinoamérica. En el otoño de 1989, Joaquín nos reunió en Zaragoza a un grupo de profesores que nos dedicábamos, en mayor o menor medida, al estudio de la Filosofía Medieval, entre los que estaban Vicente Muñoz Delgado, Saturnino Álvarez Turienzo, Josep-Ignasi Saranyana, Horacio Santiago Otero, Mariano Álvarez Gómez, Eudaldo Forment Giralt, María Jesús Lacarra, Jorge Ayala Martínez, Ramón Gabaldós Cardona, de la Editorial Anthropos, y yo mismo. Contamos además con el asesoramiento de D. Antonio Ubieto Arteta, catedrático de Historia Medieval de la Universidad de Zaragoza, reconocido experto en la Edad Media hispana.
La intención de Joaquín era crear una Sociedad que se consagrara al estudio y difusión de la Filosofía Medieval en España, que fuera continuación de la Asociación Española de Filosofía Medieval que había existido con anterioridad, creada en Madrid el 18 de abril de 1962 y que se había disuelto a comienzos de la década de 1980. Tras varias sesiones mantenidas en Zaragoza bajo su generoso auspicio, se acordó en la reunión mantenida el día 30 de junio de 1990, crear la Sociedad de Filosofía Medieval (SOFIME), aprobar un borrador de sus Estatutos y constituir una Junta Directiva Provisional presidida por el Dr. D. Joaquín Lomba Fuentes, actuando como Vicepresidente el Dr. D. Saturnino Álvarez Turienzo y como Secretario el Dr. D. Jorge Ayala Martínez. El objetivo de esta nueva Sociedad era, según el Acta de la reunión, “asociar a todos aquellos profesores e investigadores dedicados a la Filosofía Medieval a fin de colaborar en proyectos comunes de trabajo y de intercambiar investigaciones y publicaciones a la manera como se hace, en concreto, en la Societé Internationale pour l’étude la Philosophie Médiévale”. Se acordó igualmente celebrar los días 12, 13 y 14 del mes de diciembre de 1990 el Primer Congreso de Filosofía Medieval en Zaragoza, en el que se celebraría una Asamblea General para aprobar y ratificar los Estatutos provisionales y elegir a la Junta Directiva y cargos correspondientes de una manera definitiva.
Se celebró el Congreso, consagrado al estudio de “Los límites de la Razón en el pensamiento medieval”, con gran asistencia de participantes, se sancionaron los Estatutos y se eligieron por votación los miembros de la Junta Directiva, quedando como Presidente el Dr. Joaquín Lomba Fuentes y como Secretario el Dr. D. Jorge Ayala Martínez. Las Actas del Congreso se publicaron en 1992. A partir de aquí la tarea de Joaquín fue enorme, impulsando todo tipo de proyectos, de tareas y de investigaciones. Convocó dos nuevos Congresos en Zaragoza: el segundo tuvo lugar en diciembre de 1994 y estuvo dedicado a “Ética y política en el pensamiento medieval. Fundamentos de la modernidad” y el tercero se celebró los días 17 y 18 de diciembre, con una asistencia de más de doscientos congresistas, coincidiendo con el Octavo Centenario de la muerte de Averroes, por lo que estuvo dedicado a “Averroes y los averroísmos” y en el que participaron congresistas procedentes de Alemania, Italia, Colombia, Venezuela, Marruecos y Egipto, abierto por tanto ya al ámbito internacional, lo que provocó que poco después se incorporaran a SOFIME tanto Portugal como los países Latinoamericanos. Los tres Congresos contaron con el patrocinio de Ibercaja, la Universidad de Zaragoza, el Gobierno y las Cortes de Aragón. En las Asambleas de SOFIME celebradas con ocasión de estos Congresos, Joaquín fue elegido por unanimidad Presidente de la Sociedad. En el cuarto Congreso, celebrado en Córdoba en diciembre de 2004, que tuvo por objeto principal el centenario de la muerte de Maimónides en 1204, Joaquín puso a disposición de la Asamblea su cargo de Presidente. Se acordó que los próximos Presidentes de SOFIME fueran quienes se encargaran de celebrar el siguiente Congreso y se propuso el nombramiento de Joaquín como Presidente de Honor de la Sociedad.
Quienes hemos tenido la suerte de conocer y tratar de cerca a Joaquín, sabemos de la gran persona que se nos ha ido. Gran estudioso, dispuesto siempre a ayudar a quien se lo solicitara, a escuchar y a dirigir, persona afable, bondadosa, sencilla, de un gran rigor intelectual. Joaquín fue un gran conocedor de la Historia de la filosofía griega. Pero su mundo intelectual, en el que se sentía a gusto y en el que disfrutaba, fue el mundo del pensamiento islámico y del pensamiento judío. Conocedor del árabe y del hebreo por sus estudios de Filología Semítica, en la que era Doctor, y de Filosofía, en la que también tenía el sumo grado, pudo consagrarse a la investigación en estos dos campos, dejándonos en prenda una multitud de trabajos, cerca de doscientos publicados en revistas especializadas y en capítulos de libros. Experto en el mundo árabe y judío de Aragón, suyas son las traducciones de pensadores nacidos en estas tierras, como Avempace e Ibn Paqûda, o que vivieron en Zaragoza, como Ibn Gabirol, y compuso diversos libros, de los que entresacamos algunos de sus títulos: La filosofía islámica en Zaragoza, 1987; La filosofía judía en Zaragoza, 1988; La raíz semítica de lo europeo, 1997; El Ebro: Puente de Europa. Pensamiento musulmán y judío, 2002; El mundo tan bello como es. Pensamiento y arte musulmán, 2005. Pero, sobre todos ellos, me gustaría destacar un bellísimo libro, en el que recoge una colección de textos de tres sabios formados en la cultura judaica, vinculados a Aragón, en el que abundan sentencias que aconsejan conductas prácticas y útiles en este mundo o máximas de contenido religioso y moral, Se trata del libro: Ibn Gabirol, Ibn Paqûda, Pedro Alfonso: Dichos y narraciones de tres sabios judíos, edición de Joaquín Lomba, prólogo de Mª Jesús Lacarra, Zaragoza, Mira Editores, 1997. Que Joaquín se ocupara en darnos a leer estos preciosos textos nos muestra mucho de lo que era Joaquín: el sabio que enseña con la mayor humildad. SOFIME se une al dolor de Pilar, su mujer, y del resto de su familia. Que descanse en paz nuestro querido amigo y compañero.

Digitization and libraries: the future of the past

Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, 30 May 2018

Between 2012 and 2017 the Bodleian Libraries of the University of Oxford and the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana (Vatican Library) joined efforts in a landmark digitization project with the aim of opening up their repositories of ancient texts. More than 1.5 million pages from their remarkable collections have been made freely available online to researchers and to the general public. The initiative was made possible by a £2 million award from The Polonsky Foundation. Dr Leonard Polonsky, who is committed to democratizing access to information, sees the increase of digital access to these two library collections — among the greatest in the world — as a significant step in sharing intellectual resources on a global scale.

To mark the end of the project, a ground-breaking conference on digitization and libraries is being held in Rome on 30 May 2018. The venue is the Conference Centre at the Augustinian Patristic Institute, which is situated just off St Peter’s Square. In the context of the Polonsky project this free conference will look at the future of digitized collections and their funding, with prominent speakers from different libraries and funding bodies across Europe.

Les 4-6 juin 2018 se tiendra à Tours, au CESR, une école thématique du CNRS: 
 
Le Platonisme au Moyen Age et à la Renaissance.

L’admirable renouveau, aussi bien en France qu’en Europe, des études sur le platonisme et le néoplatonisme grec et hellénistique a révélé par contraste la lacune des recherches sur le néoplatonisme médiéval et renaissant. Il est vrai que le Moyen Âge a connu indirectement le platonisme, mais l’historiographie a montré sa présence constante et multiple. En effet, le platonisme fut un phénomène cosmopolite et de longue durée empruntant plusieurs chemins : d’Athènes, à Pergame, à Bagdad, jusqu’à Tolède et à Florence.

Salle des Conseil, University Paris II 

Ius Gentium - Ideas and Practices of International Law in Early Modern Law and Theology 

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS 

Long forgotten by historiography and legal theorists, the classic doctrine of ius gentium elaborated in the sixteenth century was reintroduced into the field of thought at the beginning of the twentieth century thanks to important monographs devoted to Francisco de Vitoria and Francisco Suarez1. It was then taken up by Ernest Nys2 and James Brown Scott3, in a context dominated by the voluntarist interpretation of the international law, which considered ius gentium as the expression of the all-powerful will of the States4. Stressing that men and peoples appear as the great absent of the voluntarist doctrine, Nys, Scott and other great internationalists in the early twentieth century re-interpreted the idea of a consensual law jointly decided by the nations, in relation to their interests and that of men. In doing so, they relied on the authority of classic doctrine of ius gentium developed in the works of sixteenth and seventeenth century authors. The classical doctrine of ius gentium also formed the basis of major contributions by jurists to rethink the establishment of peace between men, thus illustrating its major significance for human societies5. 

The secondary literature that is now devoted to the early modern doctrine of ius gentium6 is part of a slightly different spirit. This classical doctrine is no longer interpreted in comparison with classical international law of the 17th century, of which it would have constituted an uncompleted precedent. Rather, it is studied for its own sake, with regard to the historical needs of the societies of the time, to its practical interest, and to intellectual schemata and references mobilized by theorists of the 16th to develop it7. Today, scholarship proceeds to a more precise analysis of the historical background 

from which the idea of interhuman normativity emerged at the very moment when political power was territorialized and where the newly acquired autonomy of the states threatened to set them up against others8. Contemporary scholarship pays also attention to the driving role of the doctrine, mobilized most often within broader issues, such as whether the nation is the owner of its public space or whether it remains common to humanity9. Furthermore, investigation into the early modern literature on ius gentium is no longer limited to emblematic figures such as Francisco de Vitoria and Francisco Suarez; these authors are seen as part of a much broader intellectual current10. Finally, the doctrinal sources are read in light of the great historical and geopolitical events of the time, illustrating their practical significance11. 

The richness of these perspectives calls for the exploration of at least the five following axes: 

1. The generic definitions of ius gentium between theory and practice, 

2. the references to dominium, kingdoms, borders and international trade, 

3. the study of references to humanity, the Church, the Empire and the State, 

4. the question of global stability and of the binding force of ius gentium

5. Theory and practice - The right to war, the intermediaries of peace and the question of the use of the law of nations in the event of international conflict. 

Papers can be presented in English or French. 

Subject to peer-review, the contributions to the symposium will be published. 

Deadline to submit an abstract of the communication is July 30, 2018. 

Please send your paper proposal to Gaëlle Demelemestre (gdemelemestre@gmail.com)

Latin Summer Language Institute at the University of Virginia

Learn Latin this Summer at UVA! For over 20 years the Classics Department at the University of Virginia has offered students the opportunity for intensive study of Latin beginning with the basics of Latin grammar and progressing to reading ancient Roman authors such as Vergil, Ovid, and Cicero. The program offers six hours of formal instruction in Latin every weekday for eight weeks (June 17-August 10, 2018) covering the equivalent of four semesters of college level Latin. No previous knowledge of Latin is required, but students who have already taken introductory Latin at the college level may enroll only in the second half. Non-credit options are also available.

Critical Editions of Medieval Philosophic Translations – Challenges and Opportunities

Tel Aviv University/Institute for Advanced Studies (Jerusalem)

22-28 July 2018

In the framework of the GIF Project “Arabic-into-Hebrew-into-Latin: The Latin Translation of Maimonides’ Guide. Critical Edition, History and Cultural Context”, in collaboration between the Thomas-Institut (University of Cologne) and The Cohn Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas (Tel Aviv University), an international workshop and summer school dedicated to critical editions of medieval philosophical translated texts will be held in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. The workshop will focus on philological and methodological problems raised by critical editions of translated medieval philosophical and scientific texts. Sessions dealing with general questions and sessions dealing with technical questions are planned. Moreover, a practical workshop for graduate and post-graduate students is planned.

In the main sessions, questions will be addressed such as: Should a trans-lingual work be considered as an independent text in each of its target-languages, with its own independent manuscript tradition, or is it rather to be considered as another witness of the original text in its source-language? What are the implications of an edition with or without an existing original textual source? Do we have to strive for multi-lingual editions or to concentrate on the philological task peculiar to each language? What are the improvements that can be achieved by a digital edition? Which are the advantages and the limits of the already existing models for multi-lingual glossaries? What information can be provided by translation methods, such as literal/ abbreviated translations? Is it always possible to draw the borders between different genres, such as translations, commentaries and paraphrases? The workshop will include senior and junior scholars, as well as graduate and post-graduate students, working on relevant topics. The aim is to encourage a debate among senior and junior scholars active in the different fields and languages, as well as to discuss present challenges and future possibilities, in order to enable intensive exchange of knowledge and of research methods. The workshop will be held partly at the Tel Aviv University and partly at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Jerusalem. Some grants for travel and costs of stay will be assigned to PhD students who are already working on a relevant topic.

Please send your application (CV and a short letter of motivation) by April 30th to: d.disegni@uni-koeln.de

Organizers: Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Andreas Speer (andreas.speer@uni-koeln.de), Prof. Dr. Yosef Schwartz (yschwart@post.tau.ac.il), Dr. Diana Di Segni (d.disegni@uni-koeln.de)

Three Research Fellowships in Late Ancient Philosophy, Biblical Early Christian Studies
 

Job description

The project studies one of the most fundamental ideas of ancient Greek culture – the search for perfection. For centuries, not only philosophers and theologians, but also other intellectuals have reflected on what this ideal should consist in, devising ways of pursuing it in a wide range of human activities. A major focus is the complex relationship between theory and praxis and between ideal and reality, as found in pagan and Christian Greek literature from the first seven centuries CE. The team has set two main goals: the production of a comprehensive study of the different aspects of ancient ideals of perfection and of a number of in-depth studies of specific problems and core issues related to the overall topic.

Candidates are invited to apply for a full-time, four-year fellowship in one of the following subprojects:

-    fellowship 1: a systematic study of the reception history of the ideal of homoiosis theoi in pagan Greek philosophy, with particular attention to ascetic interpretations.

-    fellowship 2: a detailed discussion of Proclus’ view of perfection, as elaborated in his Commentary on Plato’s Timaeus and in other texts.

-    fellowship 3: a comprehensive investigation into Plutarch’s use of models of perfection and their role in his ‘psycho-therapeutic’ philosophy.

Requirements

The candidates have a broad and solid competence in late ancient philosophy and preferably also basic knowledge of early Christianity. A strong command of Greek (and preferably also of Latin) is essential, as is the ability to combine historical and philosophical/theological methodologies in an interdisciplinary way. Candidates demonstrating a thorough knowledge of relevant literary sources will be especially attractive; proven expertise in one or more of the research domains is an asset. The team welcomes applications from candidates with an excellent graduate degree (typically M.A.) in Classics or in related disciplines (e.g. Ancient History, Byzantine Studies, Religious Studies).

Applicants should be fluent in at least one of the following languages: English, French or German. The dissertation should as a rule be written in one of these languages.

How to apply

Applications should include a letter outlining the candidate’s background and motivation, a detailed CV, one writing sample, and at least one letter of recommendation.

Candidates are asked to submit the entire file to geert.roskam@kuleuven.be.

Deadline for applying: 1 June 2018.

A selected number of candidates will be invited to Leuven for an interview on the 27th of June.

Starting date: 1 October 2018 (or soon after).

Paradoxes and Metaphors of Time in Early Universe(s) - 2 Postdocs


The Department of Philosophy at the Autonomous University of Barcelona is seeking to appoint 2 postdocs in Ancient Philosophy for a fixed-term period of 24 months. The positions are to support the research project PROTEUS - Paradoxes and Metaphors of Time in Early Universe(s), which is funded by the European Research Council and led by Dr Silvia De Bianchi.

Successful candidates will work in a multi-disciplinary research team.
