Abstract: Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies and part of Green College’s Thematic Lecture Series: Between Rules and Practice: Why We Need Practical Wisdom in Politics. Sylvia Berryman studied ancient Greek philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. As a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow in King’s College London, she worked as editorial assistant for the Ancient Commentators on Aristotle project. She joined the department at UBC in 2004, following five years with the Department of Philosophy at Ohio State University. She has received fellowships and grants from Center for Hellenic Studies, National Humanities Center, Institute for Advanced Study Princeton, National Science Foundation and SSHRC. Her research interests center on ancient Greek natural philosophy and the impact of Greek science on natural philosophy: published papers consider the philosophical reception of optics, mechanics, medicine, pneumatics, as well as theories of mixture, qualities, causation and teleology. Her book, The Mechanical Hypothesis in Ancient Greek Natural Philosophy, is published by Cambridge University Press, 2009.
