History of Philosophy Roundtable (HOPR)
The Loyola History of Philosophy Roundtable (HOPR) meets regularly during
the academic year to discuss work in progress by graduate students and
faculty on topics in the history of philosophy. Most of the papers are by
Loyola Chicago department members, but we also welcome occasional visitors.
Meetings will generally be held in the Crown Center for the Humanities, but
locations vary; see below. Papers to be discussed are circulated
electronically approximately one week before the scheduled meeting.
To receive announcements about the Loyola HOPR schedule and receive the
Loyola HOPR papers electronically, or if you will be visiting Chicago and
