The sixth Biennial Conference of Greek Studies held at Flinders University from 23 to 26 June 2005 marked an important step forward: it became an international conference, thus attracting a considerable number of specialists from Europe as well as academics and post-graduate students from Australia. Fifty-five papers were published in these Proceedings after being assessed as significant contributions to knowledge by scholars of international repute.

A useful corrective to the increasingly ahistorical approach in much contemporary philosophy is an appreciation of the fact, often neglected these days, that many of the themes currently at the centre-stage of philosophical discussion were not merely raised by the Greeks but dealt with along lines that ring familiar to modern ears. A case in point is the issue of individuation in contemporary analytic metaphysics,
in particular as it arises in connection with the problem of change. It will emerge that various moves in the recent literature have affinities with and indeed were anticipated by the Stoics in their treatment of puzzles of mereological change.
