Summary

"Drama and Philosophy - a recurrent and most needed encounter" works on reviewing the multiple dependence between philosophy and drama, on developing the contribution of dramatic concepts to philosophical thought, and vice versa, the contribution of philosophy to the scenic languages. We understand “drama” in the larger sense: it is precisely by the multiplicity of its languages that drama can enrich the philosophy of language.

Announcement

This project works on reviewing the multiple dependence between philosophy and drama, on developing the contribution of dramatic concepts to philosophical thought, and vice versa, the contribution of philosophy to the scenic languages.

We understand “drama” in the larger sense: it is precisely by the multiplicity of its languages that drama can enrich the philosophy of language. This project will accept contributions that refer to any of the languages used in the scene, from text to movement or space, as well as case studies in which the dramatic is found in theater, dance, film, opera or in euphoric or dysphoric situations of everyday life.
