Sten Ebbesen receives honorary degree from University of Bologna

Anyone who has had more than passing contact with the field of medieval logic, grammar, rhetoric, semantics has come across Sten Ebbesen, whose work is wide-ranging in time, place, and content. In February 2020 he received the “Laurea ad honorem” from the University of Bologna, with a laudatio by Constantino Marmo (another familiar name in medieval philosophy!).

The ceremony was recorded and can be watched on youtube:

Starting around 41:00, he gives a talk (in English, not in Latin!) called “A Scholarly Life”, including much about the study of the history of philosophy. Thanks to BPH who shared this over on Facebook—we figured others would also be interested in this!
