Conference on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st August 2019, Amsterdam. Pre-conference on Thursday 29th August - Understanding the role of activities and occupations in transforming contemporary society
Restlessness: Plea for an immeasurable life. Have we lost the ability to do nothing in our modern society? Do we become restless during our attempts to lead a balanced life, or could restlessness be used to drive us forward? Ignaas Devisch, Professor in Philosophy, Medical Philosophy and Ethics will share a historical and philosophical view on our relationship with time, balance and boredom in daily life.
“Philosophy in my view is dancing on the skin of time: standing still in the stream of events of where we are part. We can understand our time better by looking back.”
