Activity: Talk or presentation › Invited talk
Fernando Gil (1937-2006) has built one of the most original philosophies of his time, whose core is a reflection on the intelligible and on intelligibility. From Preuves to the Traité de l'Évidence et La Conviction, to name the three best-known works of the French public, Fernando Gil will have questioned the conditions of intelligibility that make it possible to constitute objects and to describe the activities of knowledge, thus questioning feeling, belief, conviction, which are at the heart of objective knowledge.
The purpose of the Logiques de la forme conference was to examine the fundamental concepts of his thought, such as those of truth, self-evidence, hallucination, proof, sovereignty and expression, in the light of the notion of form, the genesis of forms, their effectiveness and their transformation. The planned interventions will attempt to recreate the richness of a work that has been nourished by the history of philosophy, science and the arts, which has confronted contemporary thinking and has intertwinned philosophy and social sciences.
