Lecture - "Life as a Couple"
Thursday 14 March 2024, at 7 pm, Théâtre Princesse Grace
If the meaning of life is a number, it certainly isn't "one". There may be single-cell organisms, bacteria, yeast, plankton, and other protozoa... But even they need something else, namely an environment in which to exist. Every organic molecule, in addition to having a lifespan and sources of energy, is built on multiplicity, alterity, combinations of elements, carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, water... Naturally, such is the essence of life on Earth, the life of living things, but tells us nothing about the way in which humans choose to live that life. Lecture organised by the association Les Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco.

Philosophy Workshop - "Mental Load: A Mother's Invisible Burden"
Wednesday 13 March 2024, at 5.30 pm, Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace
The phrase "mental load" was coined by sociologists in the 1980s to describe the cognitive aspect of physical labour. The concept was quickly seized on by feminists to highlight the unrecognised burden that falls on women caring for their families. Mental load is now understood to refer to the psychological, cognitive, and emotional implications of looking after others, particularly young children, and the stress placed on women, who bear an unequal share of responsibility for care. Workshop organised by the association Les Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco.
