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.

The Colloquium is organized by the ESPHIN Institute, in collaboration with cUNdp, the Centre Sèvres in Paris and Ignatianum in Krakow. The Colloquium is supported by the HEST (Heigher Education for Social Transformation) project, the FNRS and the FWB.

Programme: 

The Colloquium will begin with an interview-conference with the writer Sylvie GERMAIN and on the evening of Thursday 24th, the screening of the film "INCENDIES" by Villeneuve will allow the public to reflect on the question of identity in the face of images of the 7th art. Several speakers from all over Europe and Canada: Guilhem Causse; Gaëlle Fiasse; Robert Grzywacz; Dominique Lambert; Yves Poullet; David Doat; Emmanuele Iula; Laura Rizzerio; Marie Garrau; Cécile Lavergne; Agatha Zielinski, as well as many Belgian and foreign researchers, gathered during thematic workshops, will be the main participants in this meeting.
