Subjectivité et sociabilité dans les traditions arabe et latine

Subjectivity and Sociability in the Arabic and Latin Traditions

*  *  *

Publié le jeudi 21 avril 2011 par Loïc Le Pape


The general theme of the workshop is to explore the notions of subjectivity in the contexts of moral and political philosophy from Late Antiquity to Early Modern period. In more precise terms, the workshop concentrates on the various ways in which human subjectivity figures in discussions concerning human sociability, and how the conceptions of human experience, agency, consciousness, self-consciousness, emotions, and intersubjectivity appear in political contexts. By addressing the interplay between political philosophy and philosophical psychology in different historical and intellectual contexts, the workshop will further philosophical understanding of the nature of subjectivity within social context and elucidate affiliations and parallel developments within different traditions.
