International Winter Seminar 2019

«Practicing Philosophy»

Argenteuil — France

February 25th — March 2nd, 2019

The Institute of Philosophical Practice is organizing its regular « International winter seminar » in English on philosophical practice. It will take place in Argenteuil, a close suburb of Paris.

Some among the different issues on which the seminar will focus are the following.

  • Philosophy in business and organization: how to think together, how to evaluate individuals through philosophical tools.
  • Philosophical consultation: art of questioning, obstacles to philosophical inquiry, problematization.
  • Philosophy with children: creating exercises for the classroom, working on attitudes and competencies.
  • Personal development: self-consciousness through philosophical exercise.
  • Argumentation: argumentation problems, evaluating arguments.

In this context, philosophy is not an academic activity centered on the history of ideas, and one does not come simply to narrate what he does in his home country, but get acquainted with the many ways of philosophizing, as an activity constitutive of the mind and the self. Philosophy with children, philosophical consultation, philosophy workshops, Socratic dialogue, etc., one is introduced to the many forms and variants of such an endeavor. It is not so much knowledge that is at stake here, but acquiring and developing skills. How to conceptualize, how to problematize, how to deepen understanding of given ideas, and especially how to create a situation where this activity can be induced, are the main focus of the work.

Philosophers, philosophy professors or practicing philosophers who wish to present their methodology during the seminar are invited to forward by electronic mail their proposal.

It should primarily take the form of workshops, not lectures. These proposals can deal with the various aspects of philosophical practice.

The purpose of this seminar is to exchange, discover, experiment and develop practices. This seminar does not require previous philosophical training. It can be an initiation to philosophical practice, or a deepening of the activity. Participants come from different parts of the world, and join for professional or personal reasons, in order to work on a practice that is applicable to many contexts: teaching children or adults, management, individual consultation, N. G. O. activities…

The duration will be almost a week, from February 25th until March 2nd, 2019, and the cost will be 600 Euros, including the workshops, food and accommodation in a private room. For people who are on a tight budget, this can be reduced to 350 Euros if you accept «camping style» accommodation. Our Institute can accept some people free of charge who have financial difficulties, but are highly motivated.

«Апология метафизици или искусство обращения»

Метафизика колеблется между эрудированной или религиозной сакрализацией и отвержением по причине бесполезности или сложности. Однако посредством этого измерения безвозмездности и дистанции, она позволяет нам мыслить мир и себя самих, мыслить наше мышление, созерцать его границы, его структуры, его артикуляцию. Без догм и страхов, она призывает нас хвататься за мыслимое и немыслимое. В этом труде нашей целью является не защита тезиса, но наслаждение самим упражнением в мышлении, во всех его взлетах и падениях, вырывая себя из очевидности, избегая насколько это возможно, коротких замыканий мысли. Это то, что мы называем искусством обращения.
