Persons, Symbols and Narratives

 April 2017Persons, Symbols and Narratives: 

——Construction and Representation of Interiority




On April 20 and 21 2017 the Xu-Ricci Institute organized a conference on the notion of “Person” in Chinese and Western contexts. For the second time, the annual international conference of Xu-Ricci Dialogue Institute explored the philosophical problems raised by the concept of “Person.” It aims to shed new light on this concept by fostering interdisciplinary approaches and establishing dialogues between Chinese and Western currents of thought with regard tothe construction and representation of social agents. This year, we will focus on the notion of “interiority”, trying to clarify its different meanings according to different intellectual traditions.
