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, Corinne Pelluchon, Isabelle Queval, Laurent de Sutter, Adèle Van Reeth, Pierre Vesperini, Aliocha Wald Lasowski, Frédéric Worms
About Delphine Horvilleur
Delphine Horvilleur was born in Nancy, France, on November 8, 1974. When she was 18, she left to study medicine at the Hadassah Center at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, before returning to France to study journalism. After studying at the CELSA, she joined the editorial staff of France 2 (2000-2003), serving notably in the Middle East office in Jerusalem. She then studied for five years in New York at the Rabbinical Seminary of the Hebrew Union College (HUC).
Following her ordination at the HUC in 2008, she became one of the rabbis of the Mouvement juif liberal de France (MJLF) in Paris. In 2009, she took the helm of the Tenou'a review, where she became editor-in-chief and then, in 2012, managing editor. Since 2017, she has also been leading the Tenou’a Workshops (« Ateliers Tenou’a), study and dialogue sessions that regularly bring together some 300 people every month in Paris.
In 2020, during the COVID 19 lockdown period, the online version of these workshops (« Tenou’alive ») united tens of thousands of people every week. She is one of the founding members of KeReM, the council of French-speaking liberal rabbis.
Delphine Horvilleur is married and the mother of three children.
