Ancient Philosophy in London

London is a thriving centre for ancient philosophy. Here at UCL we host The Keeling Lecture and associated Graduate Masterclass (annually) and The Keeling Colloquium (biennially). 


Lecture series in London

UCL and KCL co-convene a weekly ancient Greek reading group, and the Institute of Classical Studies hosts a fortnightly series of papers on a different theme each year, organised by academics from London working in ancient philosophy (UCL, KCL, Royal Holloway, Birkbeck, University of London)
