‘Philosophy and Conversation’ – lezing

Morgen geef ik een lezing over ‘Philosophy and Conversation’, in Brasschaat.

De School van Athene, door Rafaël.

De School van Athene, door Rafaël.

“The Greek philosopher Socrates introduced the idea that individuals could not be intelligent on their own, that they needed someone else to stimulate them. And so began a long history of conversation in philosophy. This concerns conversations with others, but also with oneself: Socrates descibes the ‘two-in-one’ dialogue every thinking individual has with his own inner demon (or voice). In my lecture, I discuss several philosophical perspectives on conversation, from Socrates and Epicurus, to Hannah Arendt. I will also focus on how new technologies and sociale media have influenced our conversations, and how we can try to improve our interactions.”

 

UnknownLater deze week geef ik de klas ‘How to have better conversations‘, voor The School of Life, Antwerpen, in het Nederlands.

Over deze klas verscheen het artikel ‘Converseren kun je leren‘ in De Morgen.
