A WEEK OF PHILOSOPHY
January 22 @ 9:00 am - January 23 @ 5:00 pm
Description- The Week of Philosophy bridges French and Indian thinkers, creating an international network of alternatives to common thought. What better way than a whole week dedicated to French-Indian critical thinking?
The Week of Philosophy crosses Delhi to Calcutta, passing by Chandernagore and a small Santali village of West-Bengal, Borotalpada. Starting with a two-day conference at IIT Delhi on “The Present of the Day”, the Week of Philosophy touches International French School in Delhi before travelling to West-Bengal, in partnership with Kolkata Literary Meet (KALAM Festival), Trimukhi Platform and “Know your Indo-French Heritage” project.
Scholars across disciplines explore “past”, “heritage” and “memory”, and how physics, technology and social sciences (particularly anthropology, history and political science) conceive “the present”.
Culminating simultaneously as Institut francais’ international “Nights of Ideas”, The Week of Philosophy also commemorates the 50th anniversary of May 1968, articulating the provocative yet refreshing statement: “Power to the imagination”.
Date- 22 & 23 Jan
