Philosophical Encounters of Monaco present two series: “What’s happening to us” and “Philosophical aspirations”
The Philosophical Encounters of Monaco are presenting two new series from founder members Robert Maggiori, Joseph Cohen and Raphael Zagury-Orly to help people better understand what we are experiencing and gain an insight into the upheavals caused by the health crisis. Along with “L’Instant Philo”* (A Philosophical Moment), these two new series feature thinkers from a variety of backgrounds with the intention of encouraging us all to reflect.
“What’s happening to us?”
Philosophers, sociologists, psychologists, psychoanalysts, historians, writers, doctors and anthropologists engage in a 20-minute discussion during which they open up avenues and put to the test concepts which may help us to truly understand “what is happening to us” right here, right now.
This series offers philosophers and intellectuals a chance to express their aspirations for philosophy through presentations designed to encourage and inspire both interpretations of our era and proposals of meaning for our future and for subsequent generations. It seeks to offer a unique space for free and concrete speech where philosophers from a wide range of backgrounds debate their views.
The pandemic has caused a crisis which began with health and then encompassed social, economic, cultural, educational, psychological and even moral factors. But it has also affected our most everyday habits, the way we do things, the way we speak, the way we behave in relation to others and to ourselves. Touching, embracing, going for a walk, obeying, making decisions, expressing ourselves, breathing, seeing and watching, studying, teaching, passing time, becoming bored, playing, even growing old: to what extent are we no longer doing these things “as we did them before”? In the space of just a few minutes, “L’Instant Philo” puts this question into perspective and offers some insights.
L’Instant Philo is broadcast on Monaco Info on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. and Fridays at 8.30 p.m., after the news bulletin. You can also find it at https://philomonaco.com/philo-tv/?video_cat=linstant-philo
