HUMAN BEINGS AND THEIR WOUNDS OF THE INFINITE
Josep Maria Esquirol, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Barcelona, Head of the Aporia Research Group in dialogue with Costantino Esposito, Full Professor of History of Philosophy at Bari University. Introduced by Davide Perillo, Journalist.
A passion for the person starts with realising what human beings are, understanding their questions, discovering their needs and desires, identifying with their ‘hearts’. The heart of a finite being in which continually emerges the ‘wound’ of the infinite, and that discovers its irreducibility and authentic nature through the relationship with the Other. Hence, an abstract analysis is not enough; we must start instead from our own experience of the world and history; this is the only way we have to let life speak to us so that its possible meaning can reveal itself. Two philosophers will share a moment of common work and friendship on the trail of this fundamental human experience.
