This lecture-course on the hermeneutics of vulnerability reexamines an approach to philosophy as the art of living by posing a fundamental question, “what can we learn from adversities”?
Our lecture-course on the hermeneutics of vulnerability reexamines an approach to philosophy as the art of living by posing a fundamental question, “what can we learn from adversities”? Inspired by Martha Nussbaum and Paul Ricoeur, we will address the human condition not as the self-enclosed ego but as a hermeneutically examined life by embracing the truth of lived experience without silencing what seems to be incomprehensible, unpredictable, and inexplicable. Ricoeur’s anthropological shift from l’homme fallible (fallible man) to l’homme capable (capable human being) inspires us to see the coexistence of human weakness and strength. Demystification of our illusions is equally important as the affirmation of our existence if we wish to disclose the truth and meaning of being a human being in the world and confront the ambiguities of living with diversity but also with adversities. With Martha Nussbaum, we can say that “To be a good human being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an ability to trust uncertain things beyond our own control.”
