Every Wednesday (from 31st of October 2018 on) at 6 pm the Members of the Centre (and everyone interested and able to join us in Vilnius) meet to read Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics. We use David Ross’s translation comparing it to the original as well as to other translations (including the Lithuanian translation of Jonas Dumčius). The readings take place at Mykolas Romeris Uuniversity, LAB Building, in 101 (Didlaukio st. 55, Vilnius). The international members of the Centre connect via Skype. Lithuanian scholars interested in Aristotle are especially welcome!
