Everyone is welcome to discover our activities in philosophy practice in english, no prerequisite. So, philosophical practice includes two forms or sessions: collective workshops and philosophical consultations. Thus, it is possible to learn the methodology of Socratic questioning and argumentative replying. To understand what it is all about, it is possible to do an experimental session, an argumentation exercise, a presuppositions exercise or a philosophical consultation. This lasts half an hour or three quarters of an hour, with an exchange of comments at the conclusion.

The skills trained in philosophical practice workshops are present in many professions and activities of daily life: justifying one’s actions, defending a point of view, requesting a certain type of information, problematizing the position of one’s opponent, making a decision, writing, speaking, etc.

There is thus a double dimension in our philosophical practice workshops: technical, which is inspired by the practical ideas of certain well-known philosophers such as Socrates, Descartes or Hegel, and existential, which certain other philosophers have brilliantly explained such as Spinoza or Nietzsche. It thus allows both to train in a practice and to develop a self-knowledge.

Just like a gym membership, we invite you to do philosophical practice sessions on a regular basis. Just as in the gym we see the body being sculpted, so too does philosophical practice refine our thought processes. As with sports, there are sometimes frustrations, resistances, and joys. It is possible to do just training, sometimes to play games, to participate in seminars. Of course, the spirit of competition is not quite that of thinking, which fundamentally thinks with others.

For the sake of comparison, this practice …
