A new series of conferences on the theme of "Humanisms" for the 500th anniversary of the Château de Chambord
A new series of conferences!
Humanist thought is a major source of inspiration for the Renaissance: that is why we wish to invite a dozen intellectuals to place this central concept at the heart of 2019, questioning the relevance, today, of the essential aspects of this thought: the centrality of the human question, the relationship of knowledge to its criticism, the emphasis on the virtues of freedom and tolerance, multidisciplinary openness – everything that this movement has established as different “places” of the human being, and whose echo is still and always necessary, and perennial.
Whether they are lawyers, philosophers, mathematicians, writers, artists, architects or physicists, the various speakers, major actors in the essential disciplines of humanist thought, will present their living approach to a wide audience. The lectures will generally be held on a Friday evening and will run from March to December, with a final reading in which an actor will hear some of the major voices of the writers and thinkers of the time.
