    Bioethics and climate change - 7th Franco-Latin American forum of bioethics

    VII forum franco-latino américain de bioéthique

    Comme les précédentes conférences, ce VIIe forum franco latino-américain de bioéthique vise à promouvoir une approche comparative intégrée des questions en discussion, adoptant la méthodologie des sciences sociales pour donner une analyse critique du sujet. Il s'agit aussi de créer une opportunité pour les chercheurs de présenter un état de leurs travaux et de renforcer le réseau de coopération académique. Étant ouvert aux pays d'Amérique latine et des Caraïbes, d'un côté, et à ceux d'Europe, d'un autre côté, le forum mettra particulièrement l'accent sur les transformations sociales et  les mécanismes mis en place tant au niveau régional qu'universel pour traiter des questions liées au changement climatique et à la bioéthique.

    Figurations and Interlocutions: The Feminine Question in Walter Benjamin’s Oeuvre

    Artefilosofia Journal

    Even though he was a philosopher, not a poet, Walter Benjamin (1892-1940) thought poetically, says Hannah Arendt about his friend and life-long correspondent. In his oeuvre, the feminine appears through recurrent images whose meaning may vary according to the context, in different figurations and fictions. In agreement with these fictional figurations, one of his first essays presents the question of what a feminine culture or a feminine language would be (Metaphysik der Jugend, GS, II, I, 1977).

    #MariellePresente - Transnational Resistances

    The Gender and Diversity Journal, a feminist and queer review from the northeastern region of Brazil, invites everyone to submit articles, essays, interviews, field journals, reports and other texts for the special issue entitled "#MariellePresente: Transnational Resistances". The texts must describe and analyze the transnational responses following the assassination of the Brazilian Marielle Franco. She was a black woman from the favela, political activist, feminist and lesbian. She was murdered at the corner of a street in Rio de Janeiro in March 2018. Given the political nature of her assassination, many actions denouncing the crime were organized around the world.

    Vilém Flusser, Walter Benjamin – The technical ambiguities

    “Artefilosofia” Journal

    In different moments of his work, Walter Benjamin reflects upon the question of technology and related issues such as work as the mediation between man and nature, conducting his critical analysis of progress. He says: “What’s the idea? to speak of progress to a world sinking into the rigidity of death. (...) The concept of progress must be grounded in the idea of catastrophe. That things are 'status quo' is the catastrophe. It is not an ever-present possibility but what in each case is given.” Marxism will also be reviewed by him  according to his critical conception of progress: “Marx said that revolutions are the locomotive of world history.

    13th International Congress of Aesthetics – Brazil

    13th International Congress of Aesthetics – Brazil

    The 13th International Congress of Aesthetics – Brazil, entitled “Os fins da arte”, aims to highlight recurring themes in the history of philosophical aesthetics, elaborating the already constant ambiguity in its title, namely: “fins”. The term refers to the millenarian discussion about the uses of art in the past, present, and future. This takes on the important question about the autonomy of art and the regime of its heteronomy that not only asserted itself in its beginnings, but still imposes itself in the form of market demands tending to disfigure the original impetus of important aesthetic manifestations.

    Our idea of "sharing"

    Depuis la nuit des temps, l’humanité essaie de se réunir pour échapper aux dangers visibles (animaux sauvages, tribus ennemis, clans hostiles, cataclysmes de toute sorte) et invisibles (esprits malins, spectres, fantasmagories...), enfin, par amour, par peur, par haine ou par devoir, - par n’importe lequel de ces « géants de l’âme » – hommes et femmes mettent en scène une mythique réunion où tous puissent partager des objectifs communs, une destinée ou une mission, un projet, pour provisoire qu’il soit, ou pour utopique que cela paraisse aux yeux des incrédules.

    Três franceses e uma alemã

    Marcos do pensamento Ocidental

    Le projet a été conçu à partir de quatre européens qui ont fortement influencé la pensée occidentale au cours du XXe siècle. Leurs œuvres sont une référence quand il s’agit de questions impliquant la transdisciplinarité, et, en même temps, d’une perspective non-eurocentrique. Malgré la spécifité de chacun de ces discours, on peut les rassembler autour tant de la problématique du privilège du temps présent que de la production de subjectivité. La répercussion de leurs travaux au Brésil et en Amérique Latine n’a jamais cessé de jeter des lumières sur les enjeux concernant l’ethos de ces pays et ses lectures possibles.

    Rewriting: logic of repetition?

    III International Conference in Narratives

    The third International Conference in Narratives, organized by Universidad EAFIT (Medellín, Colombia) and Università degli Studi di Padova, proposes rewriting as an object of reflection from the arts, humanities, social sciences and communication sciences. To interrogate the gesture of writing a text again, it involves accounting for an operation that, in its apparent simplicity, shows the experience of time and repetition, the recording of memory, the tension between imitation and difference, and the means of reproduction and creation. Along its relationships, objects and notions that it implies, the gesture of rewriting is exemplary and heuristic; it has become a model for understanding various phenomena and cultural practices.

    Derechos Humanos, Democracia y Sistema Económico: mitos y realidades

    Llamada a contribuciones para libro colectivo internacional

    La “Red Iberoamericana de Investigadores sobre Ética, Derechos Humanos y Estado de Derecho” RIEDHED invita a la presentación de trabajos para la edición próxima de un libro colectivo internacional que se titulará “Derechos Humanos, Democracia y Sistema Económico: mitos y realidades”. El propósito de este libro consiste en descifrar rigurosamente los tipos de relaciones que se establecen a nivel social, político, jurídico y económico, entre los derechos humanos, la democracia y el sistema económico de libre mercado. Para lograr este objetivo, las propuestas deberán referirse preferentemente a casos específicos en los que se identifiquen las relaciones de tensión, y tal vez de complementariedad, entre los derechos humanos y otras áreas jurídicas específicas (regulaciones económicas, laborales, tributarias, procesales, administrativas, penales, civiles, etc.).

    Education, ethics and politics in contemporary times

    Dans un moment où l’air du temps impose des ruptures (et pas encore une continuité) par rapport à l’ordre établi, la relation entre éthique, politique et éducation se donne à penser. Non pas comme « objet », mais comme interpellation vitale. La pensée française joue un rôle pivot en ce qui concerne les questions contemporaines d’intégration des différences culturelles (la philosophie de la différence) et de réflexion sur les enjeux politiques qui en découlent (l’idée d’une démocratie à venir).

    La théorie de la reconnaissance occupe une place privilégiée dans le débat intellectuel contemporain. Dans le contexte de la philosophie politique et sociale, des auteurs comme Jürgen Habermas, Charles Taylor, Nancy Fraser, Axel Honneth, entre autres, ont montré leur importance et leur valeur éthico-politique. Le lien entre la reconnaissance, l'autonomie, l’identité subjective et les transformations politico-économiques, est au cœur du débat entre ces auteurs. Dans le domaine de la psychanalyse, la notion de reconnaissance a également eu une forte présence.
