What’s the point of philosophy, since we have science? Today we want to become an engineer, doctor, researcher, but not a “philosopher” anymore. Why ?
Is philosophy seen as a discipline that belongs to the past? Does neuroscience render obsolete any philosophical reflection on the nature of consciousness? On the side of the Silicone Valley, the doctrine about Empowerment and Trans-humanism is at his height. Is this the ultimate philosophy? Or a new totalitarianism?
This Café Philo organized by the French International School Marguerite Duras, Mr. Sylvain Dumont Professor of philosophy, and participants, will try to answer to these questions, this Thursday, November 16 at 7.00 pm, at the Sofitel Saigon Plaza Hotel, HCMC.
