The Care and Compassion seminar

For more information on this seminar, visit the Care and Compassion website.

 

“Each voice, no matter how conflicting, must be incorporated into a conversation to create a world. In the face of all the various aspects of a shared fragility and weakness, the moment of care is also that of every resource, also shared, as if the possible destruction of each and every one of us was the answer to what renews not only the institution of us all, but the creations of each person””. The Care and Compassion seminar is a forum for sharing and discussion with speakers from different backgrounds focusing on the theses of Zona Zaric and Pauline Bégué and their experiences. It is part of a political and societal movement of thought that wishes to incorporate the “”Humanities”” and the question of “”commons”” (common bonds) into citizen thinking and democratic life. Their thesis topics converge in this project of reinventing the political and ethical relationship between people through the notions of care and compassion. They contribute to the project of rehumanizing care, politics and life by encouraging spaces for sharing and teaching and by thinking about compassion.”
