    Dénoncer ou dissimuler ? L’erreur médicale dans l’Antiquité et au Moyen Âge

    Grèce, Rome, Égypte, Proche-Orient

    Médiator, Dépakine, Thalidomide, sang contaminé, prothèses mammaires… les scandales sanitaires de ces cinquante dernières années ont régulièrement concentré l’attention générale sur le problème du risque médical. Les nombreuses questions qu’ils ont soulevées, abondamment relayées par les médias, nous montrent à quel point la question de l’erreur médicale est cruciale et complexe. Mais avant de devenir scandale, l’erreur médicale est aussi un risque inhérent à la pratique de la médecine, et cela depuis qu’elle existe. Une erreur dans le diagnostic, dans le pronostic ou dans la thérapeutique, aussi minime soit-elle, peut avoir des répercussions désastreuses pour le médecin et le malade si elle n’est pas repérée et corrigée. Loin de la médiatisation que peuvent connaître les scandales sanitaires d’aujourd’hui, quel est donc le statut de l’erreur médicale dans les médecines anciennes et quels sont ses enjeux ?

    Floods and Other Destructions. Stories about the End in the Ancient Eastern Mediterranean

    Le colloque porte sur la pratique de mise en récit des moments de crise, de destruction et de désagrégation sociale au sein de différentes civilisations du pourtour de la Méditerranée orientale ancienne (IIe-Ier millénaire av. J.-C.). À travers l’analyse des convergences et des divergences entre les modèles narratifs concernés – issus de la Grèce ancienne et de la Mésopotamie, du Levant et de l’ancien Israël – on examinera les éléments linguistiques et les conceptions mobilisés afin de décrire ce qui détruit – mais aussi, en contre-jour, ce qui fonde – l’identité d’une société et de ses institutions, ainsi que sa manière de se mettre en relation avec le divin et la sphère religieuse. La perspective transversale et interdisciplinaire du colloque permettra également de discuter la possibilité d’inscrire les récits et discours analysés dans un horizon culturel partagé, où chaque civilisation vient inscrire ses spécificités.

    In-betweenness: in search of intermediaries

    After more than a century of research, the humanities have developed increasingly refined concepts and tools to identify the characteristics of cultural exchange. Since the creation of the diffusionist paradigm, which often tried to study the circulation of cultural objects without specifically identifying the actors, numerous works have made it possible to dissect the transfer processes and the individuals involved. Concepts and tools inherited from anthropology and ethnology such as acculturation, cultural transfers, métissage, middle ground or hybridization have attempted to account for the phenomena resulting from intercultural exchanges. However, only more recently has attention been paid to intermediaries and their role in the various processes.

    Eros and Thanatos in the Arts of Asia

    Revue « Art Asie Sorbonne »

    From Plato to Saint Augustine to Freud, the pairing Eros / Thanatos occupies a place that is both central and multi-faceted in Western thought and art. It appears as a celebration of love as a vital energy that allows the (male) soul to escape its mortal body and reach the divine, but also as a threat when under the effect of carnal desire, or of feminine, maternal power, the soul is exhausted. This is also the case in Asian thought and art, whether in popular beliefs and images, religious icons, classical, traditional or contemporary representations.

    Approaching Networks of Gods in the Ancient Mediterranean

    Spring School of the ERC Project « Mapping Ancient Polytheisms »

    The ERC MAP proposes, in collaboration with the French School at Athens, a thematic Spring School on the approach of the gods in the Ancient Mediterranean (names, representations, cult spaces, practices and actors), through the notion of "network". The latter will be considered both as a conceptual resource of heuristic and hermeneutic scope and as an analytical tool associated with specific methods, software and visualisations.

    Naming the gods in the Graeco-Roman Syria

    Onomastic landscapes and religious dynamics

    Pour explorer l’idée selon laquelle nommer c’est convoquer des bribes de « théologie » s’enracinant dans des traditions et des innovations propres à chaque environnement, la Syrie fournit un terrain d’une richesse exceptionnelle. Dans le cadre du projet MAP (ERC Advanced Grant 741182 « Mapping Ancient Polytheisms. Cult Epithets as an Interface between Religious Systems and Human Agency »), on se propose de scruter les appellations partagées ou spécifiques, répandues ou singulières, des innombrables divinités attestées avec leurs attributs onomastiques et iconographiques dans les sanctuaires syriens : Nabu, Nergal, Shamash, Zeus, Athéna, Némésis, ou encore les moins connus Durahlun, Azzanathkona, ou Shalman.

    Civil vulnerabilities: care of the city through the prism of the body

    Cet événement se propose d’apprécier l’évolution de la Cité et des cités de la Méditerranée antique sur une période longue (VIIIe siècle av. n. è. – VIe siècle n. è.) dans leur rapport aux arts de la santé, entendus dans une acception extensive. Pareille manifestation est tout à la fois inscrite dans l’actualité de la recherche en histoire antique et aussi bien limitée qu’encouragée par l’actualité elle-même.

    Conferences in the history and philosophy of sciences

    The seminar Rencontres d’histoire et philosophie des sciences aims to promote a history and philosophy of science in which, in the words of Aldo Mieli (1935), “the unity of scientific thought” is “brought to the forefront, in relation to the multifaceted developments of particular sciences”. In order to do this, it seems imperative to us to involve all those who have an interest in the history and philosophy of science in its most diverse expressions in order to consolidate a community which, to exist, must regain its collegiality.

    Classicamente. Dialoghi Senesi sul Mondo Antico

    The junior researchers and PhD students from the Anthropology of the ancient world curriculum of the PhD course in Classics and Archeology are promoting the fourth edition of the seminar cycle Classicamente. Dialoghi Senesi sul Mondo Antico. This year's edition will focus on the varied methodologies and hermeneutical perspectives which represent the scientific guidelines followed by scholars in anthropology of the ancient world ever since its development. It will also focus on those approaches that today contribute to a constant enrichment and renovation of this field of study. Our goal is to offer to all those who take part the chance to present their work, be it the result of long research or elements of a work in progress, in an enviroment open to discussion between different perspectives (anthropological, philological, historical, archeological, semiotic etc.).

    In gods' names!

    Who named the gods? Utterers, addressers, ritual agents

    The ERC MAP Seminar “The Names of the Gods! 5: Who named the gods? Utterers, addressers, ritual agents” pursues the investigation on the systems of naming of the divine. This year, it focuses on the human agents in the process of naming the divine, whether they are producers of a discourse on the deities, addressers in a communication with the deities, or even experts in charge of a ritual knowledge. What agency do men and women exercise in the production of a specific denomination of the divine? How can we question their choices, their anchoring in a tradition or their innovation strategies?
