Science, politics & culture from a philosophical perspective
Free | Online | All welcome
RESILIENCEMonday 22 February 2021
6.00-7.15pm (UK time),
7.00-8.15 pm (Dutch time).
Resilience’ has become a buzzword, beloved of pop psychologists and workplace well-being programmes. But it also has an older history that includes the Stoics and Schopenhauer. So how do we foster resilience? Or should we foster it at all? Does a culture of resilience deny vulnerability and inequalities, or is it a practical way to cope with a tumultuous world? We trace the philosophical traditions of resilience and explore critical perspectives on its modern forms.
