Event description
Slavoj Žižek - Living and Dying in a Topsy-Turvy World

About this event

Our present is the best of times (think just about the explosion of scientific and technological discoveries) and the worst of times (pandemic, global warming, social protests…), the epoch of (fundamentalist) belief and of growing incredulity, of despair (that we are approaching some apocalypse) and of hope (that science or social protests will save us and give birth to a better world).

What should philosophy do in such a time? When we live in such a messy and opaque situation of multiple crises, we feel the double need to orient ourselves, to acquire a cognitive mapping of our situation, and to intervene in the situation to make our world a better place. How, then, can the story of the present be told in an immanent way, while we are immersed in the madness crisis of the present?

The seminar take place on October 2nd, 9th and 16th.

Seminars will meet twice a day for 90 minutes on their respective Saturdays or Sundays.

These meetings will occur at 3-4:30 pm, Paris time (9-10:30 am New York time) and 7:00-8:30 pm, Paris time (1-2:30 pm New York time).
