Provocatively and pertinently intersecting philosophical and biological views on "the vital and the mortal”, this seminar in the continuing ’Regards croisés’ series invites Alain Prochiantz (Collège de France) and Frédéric Worms (Univ. Lille 3/ENS-CIEPFC) to grapple with questions of life and death, subsequently, to engage constructively the thematics, each other, and participants in unguarded discussion.
The ’Regards croisés’ seminar series in ’Concepts and Practices in Contemporary French Philosophy’ presents different French and Anglo-saxon perspectives on twentieth and twenty-first century French philosophy around the concepts of ’Local, Vital, Legal’. Papers are presented by specialists in contemporary French philosophy as well as by those who are engaged in examining the impact of French philosophy within other domains and disciplines : literature, law, politics, art, and the sciences.
