Presentation of the book Towards a Phenomenological Axiology – Discovering what Matters (Palgrave, 2021, 312 p.) by Roberta De Monticelli.
The book Towards a Phenomenological Axiology attempts to open up a path towards a phenomenological theory of values (more technically, a phenomenological axiology). By drawing on everyday experience, and dissociating the notion of value from that of tradition, it shows how emotional sensibility can be integrated to practical reason. This project was prompted by the persuasion that the fragility of democracy, and the current public irrelevance of the ideal principles which support it, largely depend on the inability of modern philosophy to overcome the well-entrenched skepticism about the power of practical reason.
With the participation of Roberta De Monticelli, San Raffaele University, Milan, former Paris IAS Fellow, Nathalie Heinich, CNRS, and Gloria Origgi, CNRS.
The event will be in French.
