L´identité en question: entre parcours de vulnérabilités et chemins d´autonomie

Colloque vulnérabilité et identité

THE IDENTITY IN QUESTION: BETWEEN PATHS OF VULNERABILITY AND PATHS OF AUTONOMY.

SYMPOSIUM ORGANIZED AT UNAMUR, 23, 24 AND 25 JANUARY 2019

Humanity is vulnerable: the context of the crisis we are going through, both ecological and societal, is enough to convince us of this. Faced with this observation, a first reaction - as the ethical debates show quite clearly - consists in wanting to fight against this vulnerability, in the name of an autonomy conceived as an affirmation of the individual. Is it, however, the most respectful reaction to man, this being who is at the same time sensitive and rational, solitary and political? Authors (Aristotle, Levinas, Nussbaum and Ricoeur) as well as openings to science (medicine, robotics, computer science), law and the arts (literature, cinema), will help us to uncover this delicate and changing game of the capable and the vulnerable, which constitutes the human being.

Tutzing Anthropology meeting

Subgroup III: Spirituality

 

On the 26th to the 28th of October the Spirituality meeting (from Anthropology cluster) took place in Tutzing. In this occasion they prepared the contents for the assembly in Paris.

At Paris Colloquium they we will mount a half-day discussion on The Soul and its Care

Ignatius sought to help souls. In a world where the Church struggles to be heard, how can philosophy and other disciplines help us discover what spiritual care means?

Four speakers, from different cultures and with different disciplinary formations, will address this topic: provisionally Eckhard Frick (Germany, psychoanalysis); Oxana Pimenova (Russia, sociology); Bruno Saintôt (France, bioethics); Philip Endean (UK, analytic philosophy)

Each will speak for a maximum of 20 minutes – they are encouraged to be simple, and to think hard about how best to communicate with people who do not share their backgrounds.

The half-day will have three periods of 50-55 minutes, with a break. In each of the first two, the two speakers will make their presentations, with brief questions following. The final period will be given over to plenary discussion.
