2020 Society for Ricoeur Studies Conference, October 6-10, “Politics, Religion and Cultural Hermeneutics,” ONLINE PROGRAM 

“Digital Poetics: Between Phronesis and Poiesis in the Digital World

Webinar by Fernando Nascimento (Bowdoin College, Maine, USA)

Friday, January 29, 2021 (4 pm Prague time CET). Please find webinar description and registration information below.

The online and free webinar event is sponsored by the Interdisciplinary Research Lab for Bioethics – IRLaB, headed by Geoffrey Dierckxsens, Vice President of the Society for Ricoeur Studies. The Interdisciplinary Research Lab for Bioethics is at the Department of Contemporary Continental Philosophy in Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS) in Prague.

In this seminar Fernando Nascimento (Bowdoin College, Maine, USA) will discuss three aspects of practical wisdom that emerge from the French philosopher Paul Ricoeur’s ethical proposal, and apply them to current issues related to new applications for mobile devices that are designed to monitor the contacts of users infected with COVID-19 in ways that are possible. In a broader perspective, such an analysis should shed light on the potential of Ricoeur’s practical philosophy to contribute to urgent issues generated by the extremely rapid advances in digital technologies. We propose that it is necessary to review the conceptual dichotomy between phronesis and poiesis in the context of new digital technologies so that ethical considerations about the ways in which new technologies affect people and society are properly considered not only in the sphere of the use of technologies, but also in regulation of such technologies and mainly in the design of new digital artifacts and architectures.
