Workshop Philosophy Month

I flounder, therefore I am!

Tuesday 23 April, 20:00
B0.27, Student Services Center, Bonnefantenstraat 2

Carli Coenen
PhD student of Philosophy at Open University

Are you in control of your life, or do you just mess around? We live under the impression that we should live our life focusing on an end goal. But is that actually possible? Isn’t life more meaningful when we can mess around and do things because we enjoy them, rather than because they might lead to great success? Is it also acceptable to flounder, mess around and do not much at all without being goal-oriented? Why do we feel ashamed or uncomfortable when we trip up, make mistakes or make a fool of ourselves?

During this workshop, you’ll explore these questions and others, together with 20 other participants. Carli Coenen will moderate this philosophical conversation.
