Fabrice Hadjadj: Living in our interiors

Join this conference organized as part of the launch of the Faculty of Philosophy student magazine “A Mi-Chemin”!



Questioning the concept of life

We can live where we can live, where we can spread. We use terms casually in French ” to live “ and ” to live “ when it comes to discussing where we live. For this reason, a fundamental relation is always assumed to exist between living and living: Where I live is where I live, who would deny it? And this is so much so that we can no longer imagine a person living without living.

Indeed, man is not first in a dwelling or house, or even in an apartment or in a country, but in the world. ; like this the earth is our first living space, thus forming our basis for growth and life. Since we live in space, it can be space as well as living space!

Examining the spatial structures of our interiority

However, the tendency to view space as external, perhaps, spatial structures of our interiority. Because to live is to open up inside a house but at the same time and within oneself.

This relationship between inner emptiness – home – and inner emptiness – soulnot including Fabrice Hadjadj suggests questioning during this conference.
