A Workshop to discuss Professor Lane's first two lectures will be held in Cambridge on Friday 26 January 2018, between 2.30 and 4pm in the Latimer Room, Old Court, Clare College. 

Copies of the lectures will be available in advance to those wishing to attend. Professor Lane will introduce the lectures, and Professor Malcolm Schofield has kindly agreed to give an opening comment. This will be followed by open discussion.

All who are interested are welcome to attend and participate. So that we can gauge numbers (incl. for tea afterwards), please email Prof. John Robertson (jcr57@cam.ac.uk) if you intend to come. Copies of the lectures will be circulated to those who plan to attend.

A major conference on this theme will be held under the auspices of the Centre for Political Thought at Clare College, Cambridge, on 10-11 May 2018. The conference will address the ways in which political philosophers have engaged with concepts of time and the evidence of history. The conference is now full.
