The first evening of events held in Paris by the Rencontres Philosophiques of Monaco on March 28 was at the Maison des Océans. At the invitation of Charlotte Casiraghi and the founding members of the club, the philosophers Frédéric Gros and Marc Crépon and the sociologist Gisèle Sapiro, spoke on the theme: “Philosopher now, crisis and new challenges”.
In her address, Charlotte Casiraghi particularly welcomed the partnership with the Monaco Government and the Directorate of National Education, Youth and Sports, which enables philosophy to be brought into the classrooms at a younger age.
Founded in 2015 by Charlotte Casiraghi, Joseph Cohen, Robert Maggiori and Raphael Zagury-Orly, the Philosophical Encounters of Monaco aims to open up philosophy to the greatest number by proposing series of thematic conferences. After love and the body, the theme of conferences in the 2017-2018 season in Monaco will be violence.
This first Parisian event, marked by the eclecticism of art, dance, culinary originality and a concert by Mathieu Chedid and Yaron Herman, was the occasion to announce the colloquium that will take place on June 7 and 8 in Monaco and which will cover: “The time of the conversation”.
