Next HEST Event - Anthropology

Last News - Anthropology

Registration for the symposium in Paris on 16-17 May 2019 is now open

Study days and symposia in Krakow, Munich and Namur have been taken up with critical analysis and reflection on how humanity is understood, suggesting some responses to the new forms of reductionism. These events have been preparing the las event of the cluster in Anthropology during this first period of the HEST project (2017-2019).

The Paris symposium on 16-17 May 2019 will be an opportunity to take stock of what has been learnt and discovered in this work, to explore some ways forward in thinking about the changes that have taken place in anthropology, and to take up a critical dialogue with these developments by proposing some new positions of our own.

You are kindly invited to register through this LINK by February 15th.

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.
