Sophia Stone, assistant professor of philosophy in the College of Arts and Sciences, organized the panel, "Ta Metaxu–the 'in between' in Plato's dialogues,” at the 2018 Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy’s annual meeting at Christopher Newport University, Newport News, Virginia, Oct. 20–21.
Stone and Nicholas Baima from Florida Atlantic University's Honors College co-chaired the panel that included philosophers Mateo Duque from City University of New York Graduate Center, Naomi Reshotko from University of Denver and Lee Franklin from Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. This panel was a continuation of the work presented in March 2018, at FAU Honors College in Jupiter, Florida.
At the conference, Stone also presented her paper "Mathematical Unit, Odd Numbers and Soul in Plato's Phaedo," and organized a dinner in the evening for panelists and guests. A version of her paper will be published in the next edition of the PLATO Journal, an on-line international journal devoted to Platonic studies.
