Jean-Luc Marion comments on his ‘Parcours de la distance’: “Distance defines God. A God without distance, known and immediately accessible, would sink to the rank of idol of the city […] Distance, as I understand it, does not have the meaning of a distance and an absence, but designates the gap which alone allows the ...

The political philosophy of Michel Foucault
Surimposium
by jeanpierrelegros
1M ago
Abstract: Foucault clearly saw the bilateral relationship established between the State and citizens. When it is fluid, freedom comes out reinforced, fuel in one direction, production in the other. But Foucault lacks a transdisciplinary methodology on society and his positivist view conceals the gaps between individuals, in particular their propensity to have a social conscience, ...

The desire to know and the need not to understand Alexandre Vialatte quote: “Man’s mind never stops dreaming. But it also meditates, supposes and calculates. He wants to know and needs to not understand. In short, to know and to marvel. Contradictory necessities: one demands to know, the other to ignore. Hence science and poetry.” ...

Degrowth: the great confusion
Surimposium

Abstract: Proponents of degrowth wrongly confuse individual effort with collective management. Egos can rightly boast of individual effort. But to make degrowth a collective priesthood is to trample on other egos more numerous than their own, who seek to grow only to the point where the former refuse to degrowth… In the anarchist fog Proponents ...

Abstract: 3 biological clocks and a perceptual theory to explain the acceleration of the passage of time experienced with age. Enough to satisfy both the materialist and phenomenological viewpoints.
