Les Paysages Phénoménologiques des Étangs du Limousin, a philosophy video that is the third in a series on Phenomenology of Perception Around the World, is ready to launch! The launch event will feature the world premiere of the film, followed by a discussion of it with its maker, Adèle Beaufils (France) and hosts David Morris (Canada) and Ted Toadvine (France), and then a question and answer session with the audience. The launch is via a Zoom Webinar, on 18 December 2020, 13:00-14:00 EST (Montreal). It is free but requires registration. Note that the film is in French, with English subtitles. For the discussion, answers will be in French and/or English, and questions from the audience can be posed in French or English.
Les Paysages Phénoménologiques des Étangs du Limousin explores our way of perceiving our own environment, our being part of it. To do so, this short film calls on Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s works on perception—and the origin of our own knowledge.
Phenomenology of Perception Around the World is a video series celebrating the 75th anniversary of Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s 1945 Phenomenology of Perception. A project of the International Merleau-Ponty Circle and Chiasmi International, the series celebrates the history, impact, and prospects of this book in philosophy, arts, and other disciplines, with videos by scholars and artists around the world.
