Présentation (Eng)

This workshop will bring together a group of scholars who are interested in the philosophy of Paul Ricœur and its relation to philosophy and ethics of technology. It will be organized in a hybrid form.
Most of the program will happen in person. During this part of the program, a Zoom broadcast will be organized and a Zoom link will be distributed to those who would like to join the program online (they will be able to ask questions in the Zoom chat).
One part of the program, the Online Session that will start at 16:00 CET, will be held primarily online, and people will be able to present their work on Zoom.

To participate in person, people will have to provide a proof of vaccination or a negative test result.
