    Olivier Abel: Hermeneutics and the Vision for Europe

He will offer his presentation in French and answer questions posed in French or English. He is professor of philosophy and ethics at the Institut Protestant de Théologie in Montpellier. He is prominent as a Ricoeur scholar and was one of the principal driving forces behind the establishment of the Fonds Ricoeur.

    Marinescu, Paul, Ciocan, Cristian, (eds.)

    Studia Phaenomenologica, Volume 21/ 2021: From Witnessing to Testimony


    Paul Marinescu is the Fonds Ricoeur's correspondant and Postdoctoral Researcher at the Alexandru Dragomir – Institute for Philosophy

    In order to develop a hermeneutic-phenomenological analysis of testimony, this essay will first argue that testimony is “said in many ways” without being homonymous and that contemporary epistemological approaches to testimony are not capable of accounting for all paradigmatic forms of testimony.

    Between Daily Routine and Violent Protest: Interpreting the Technicity of Action

    Berlin, Boston : De Gruyter, 2021

    Most human action has a technical dimension. This book examines four components of this technical dimension.

    First, in all actions, various individual, organizational or institutional agents combine actional capabilities with tools, institutions, infrastructure and other elements by means of which they act. Second, the deployment of capabilities and means is permeated by ethical aspirations and hesitancies. Third, all domains of action are affected by these ethical dilemmas. Fourth, the dimensions of the technicity of action are typical of human life in general, and not just a regional or culturally specific phenomenon.

    The book is open acces here
