Philosophy, in the 21st century, has changed: its practices and languages are no longer those of the previous century. A turning point has been taken by new generations and thinkers from diverse origins who, more than commenting on the old masters, are taking philosophy into new fields: health, ecology, neurosciences, security warfare, non-Western thought, trans-identities, the rights of non-human living beings... Shifting the frameworks of the history of philosophy, these thinkers are also finding new audiences, through the media, in hospitals, in the theater, or through literary creation. The 20/21 Philosophers meetings give voice to this renewal of French speaking philosophical practices in the 21st century.
In this weekly series, twenty philosophers present their thoughts and redraw the landscape of contemporary philosophy:
Jean Godefroy Bidima, Florence Burgat, Pierre Cassou Noguès, Yves Citton, Yves Cusset, Souleymane Bachir Diagne, Cynthia Fleury, Tristan Garcia, Frédéric Gros, Delphine Horvilleur, Yala Kisukidi, Alexandre Lacroix, Catherine Malabou, Corine Pelluchon, Isabelle Queval, Laurent de Sutter, Adèle Van Reeth, Pierre Vesperini, Aliocha Wald Lasowski, Frédéric Worms
