Interiority, subjectivity and discursiveness

Abstract

The various perspectives of study that form this thematic project are organized around two subject matters. On the one hand, these perspectives explore the relations (seen as problematic ones) between interiority, consciousness, subjectivity and discursiveness. In different ways these perspectives refer to a double philosophical "failure": one related to the expectations concerning language as a mean of philosophical investigation and expression, and the other concerning the identification between interiority and subjectivity. On the other hand, they demand studies that place the authors (Augustine, Abelard, Bergson and Wittgenstein) in terms of their distance towards Descartes and Modern Philosophy. (AU)
