The meeting "Piacere e filosofia" will take place on Friday, April 20 at 6 p.m. at Sala Santa Rita. "Piacere e filosofia" is the new meeting of Café- Philo, the event organized in order to promote a new form of public debate on philosophy and life.
Participation by Professor Emidio Spinelli (Sapienza Università di Roma). Moderation by Rosanna Buquicchio. Readings by Paola Cataldi, Luca Siciliano and Marta Siciliano by Compagnia Aria.
It is reasonable to expect that opinions and theories on pleasure have been created since the beginning of philosophical reflection. Several different answers to the basic question "what is pleasure?" have been given since the dawn of western civilization. These answers are linked to different cultural and historical areas. They suggest solutions of major theoretical importance, with a renewed need to seriously rethink any hedonistic existential approach in the background.
The event is organized by Associazione Culturale Vivere con Filosofia and sponsored by Assessorato alle Politiche Culturali e Centro Storico di Roma Capitale. It is part of "La Filosofia interroga la Scienza", an event to spread and promote scientific culture through the debate between philosophers and scientists. Well-known Italian scientists speak about their most recent studies using explicative evidence or videos. Philosophers raise 'questions' about the thesis of the speakers and the audience has the opportunity to participate in the debate. The event is curated by Professor Rosanna Buquicchio.
Free admission (limited seats available.)
