YOU and ME

16.03.2023 – Introduction on relationship and reciprocity in Martin Buber.

30.03.2023 – How can the other be seen, as a limit or as a complement?
The question of identity.
Otherness from the identity of the self in Pau Ricoeur. In order to speak of identity, it is necessary to start from the process of identification or individuation, that is to say, that capacity according to which one can indicate something within a particular range of things of the same type. Following this process, the person would be a particular within the rest of the existing physical bodies. At this level the person does not identify himself, he is simply a “thing” in relation to others. It is necessary for the power of self-designation to emerge in order for the concept of personhood to change from being a thing of a single kind to a self.

Visible and invisible: the relationship as bridge.

3.5.2022 – Fernando Muraca – Lecture/Workshop
Visible and invisible: the relationship as bridge.
The boys came in and I could not greet them with words because I did not know Spanish. At a certain point as they arrived, I realised that each one was different, with his or her own story, and I started to draw empty hearts on the blackboard, one for each of them. Then we started and I asked them to write on each heart the words with which they felt most identified. We started, from the heart, as if we had known each other forever. We had Erika in common, we were all her friends.

Encounter – Relationship – Diversity

Encounter – Relationship – Diversity
What does it mean to ‘recognise’ the other?
The real man is not ‘equal’: he is by nature unique, i.e. different. And this is not said by reflection, but by observation of reality: no two human beings are the same. Each uniquely embodies their own humanity and it is precisely in this embodiment that their inalienable dignity resides.

Morals and art, a general introduction

22.03.2022 – Annia Martínez –  Philosopher – Conference
Morals and art, a general introduction.
Since antiquity, the moral theme (conduct) has been central to human reflection, both for its implications in concrete personal life and for its social repercussions. Distinguishing good from evil is perhaps the most difficult part of our existence, hence the need to question the objectivity or otherwise of both elements, the consequences of a relative or nihilistic stance, the real capacity for full knowledge of morality, etc. The possibility to choose is an expression of human freedom, but is this freedom absolute; is it possible to choose the infinite?; or to be even more specific, can we consciously choose evil? These are some of the questions this conference seeks to answer in view of a dialogue with the field of art and the specific category of beauty.
