Question of Identity

June 26, 2019 | London

In an increasingly global world, how do we define ourselves?

In times of globalisation, the high interconnection between social economic and political factors is both a reality and a challenge. This can prompt us to question who we are and how we fit into the broader fabric of society and the world.

Globalisation is definitely challenging what we are as social human beings. As individuals feel threatened by the new emergent society, so new types of self-identities appear.

Our speakers will explore how these questions have developed an increased relevance in a world of instant access to global communication, multiculturalism, unbounded materialism and a constant effort to ‘succeed’.

Meet Our Speakers

Raphaël Enthoven

Professor of philosophy and one of the most recognised French intellectuals and authors, Raphaël Enthoven views philosophy as a tool to deal with everyday events with the interest that they deserve. His desire to transmit and create bridges leads him to address many topics and provokes us to seek to understand before judging as well as be astonished by what we are used to seeing.

His energy and lucid delivery does not leave one indifferent!
