Research Chair in Philosophy at the Hospital
Since January 2016, the Chair in Philosophy at the Hospital has expanded its scope, working with various hospitals and care facilities. It is currently working with the GHU-Paris, Psychiatry & Neurosciences, which includes the Parisian psychiatric institutions of Sainte-Anne, Maison Blanche, and Perray-Vaucluse.
This hospital and academic chair, linked to the Humanities Chair of the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM), is headed by philosopher and psychoanalyst Cynthia Fleury. Its aim is to place ethics at the heart of healthcare decisions and practices by anchoring them in the reality of contemporary hospitals.
The Research Chair in Philosophy at the Hospital is a program dedicated to teaching and research, training and certification, as well as experimentation and deployment. It is designed to combine theory and practice by working with caregivers, patients, students, healthcare system stakeholders, as well as the general public.
We operate as “Creative Commons”. In this way, the work produced by the Chair in the field of human sciences is made freely available, making the hospital an open place for the exchange and circulation of knowledge. In doing so, the Chair strives for an effective alliance between the humanities and health to better imagine the future of shared care.
