Reading, writing, speaking

This course, organized by the Ferrater Mora Chair at a distance and online, in collaboration with the philosophy website, took place from July 1 to 21, 2013, and had 55 enrollees .

The online course dealt with reading, writing and speaking: three activities so closely linked to the human way of being that it is not always easy for us to take enough distance to analyze them and discover the implicit assumptions they often hide. Thinking about the value of writing, reading and rhetoric in our time is the central objective of this new course in the series “Limits and virtues of traditional values (the question of values in the 21st century)” .
