To function or to exist? by Miguel Benasayag

Edition Le Pommier / Essays and documents, October 17, 2018 - 240 Pages
Alet's stop wasting our lives!
But what is happening in our Western societies for the Ancients of yesteryear to have become "old people", to whom "there are few chocolates left in the box"? And at the same time, young people no longer have the right to be young... We are all being forced to function / "perform"... rather than to exist. How did it come to this?
Miguel Benasayag reaffirms the importance of the different ages of life, their own rhythms, the passage from one to the other, against the levelling of generations that the contemporary era imposes, against the race to permanent adaptation, against the loss of ties that, one as the other, dislocate us, Miguel Benasayag reaffirms the importance of the different ages of life, their own rhythms, the passage from one to the other. And we are learning how to live our lives again rather than just being stowaways.
When philosophy gives biology back its letters of nobility, it gives a real lesson in life.
Philosopher, psychoanalyst, researcher in epistemology, Miguel Benasayag is the author of numerous books (Cerveau augmenté, homme diminué, La Découverte, 2016; La Singularité du vivant, Le Pommier 2017), in which his "philosophy of combat" is expressed. Questioning our modernity, he dares to reaffirm the need for a humanist approach. He animates the collective "Malgré tout".
