Les rencontres de Sophie

guerre et paix

Every year, le lieu unique and Philosophia invite everyone to a weekend of philosophy. Conferences, panel discussions, debates and screenings… all revolving around a particular theme.

This year, war – that major phenomenon of the human condition – has made a brutal return, taking on brand-new forms (like enlisting democratic states in a war against terrorism, or even the annihilation of entire swaths of their own populations by dictator-states). Does this not demand that philosophy once again examine the very notions of “war” and “peace” – especially its own Enlightenment ideal of a universal peace achieved through the mediation of the law?
