The main purpose of this conference is to discuss chronological limits and definitions of the Philosophical Corpus of classical antiquity, depending by literary-historical criteria. Within these issues the primary aim of the conference is to propose shared models for the critical edition of the philosophical texts proceeding by Greek and Latin literature, based on the survey of the manuscript sources, the comparison of direct and indirect tradition, the preparation of critical tools, the textual commentary and the strictly philosophical one. Since the project of ‘Corpus Philosophorum Graecorum et Romanorum’ aims to publish an entire collection of texts with critical edition, translation and extensive commentaries, the conference organizers hope to attract an international gathering of scholars interested in the following topics:

- problems in critically editing fragmentary texts;

- philosophical reconstruction of the textual unit of lost works;

- definition of philosophical writing in Greek and Latin literatures;

- organization of equipment within a critical edition;

- proposals for the establishment of a canon of ancient philosophical authors;

- alternative approaches and method perspectives in order to edit and present ancient philosophical texts.
