Para qué sirven los poetas

Alberto Manguel

Xalapa 2012, 
Si toda sociedad (si casi toda sociedad) intenta expulsar a los verdaderos poetas, por la razón o por la fuerza, es porque toda sociedad se define a sí misma a través de prescripciones y fronteras. La tarea de los poetas es transgredir esas fronteras e ignorer esas prescripciones, incitar a revisar las versions oficiales, cuestionar los dogmas, exigir que las autoridades muestren sus credenciales. El celebrado autor, editor y traductor Alberto Manguel, Caballero de la Orden de las Letras de Francia, reflexiona sobre el papel de los poetas en la sociedad actual.

Do you Have to Be White and Well-Off to Be Green?

Hay Festival 2018, 

By and large, environmentalism, at least in Britain, is still seen as the concern of the relatively well off, and the decidedly white, despite the fact that poorer communities often suffer disproportionately from the impact of pollution. In the developing world it can be a different story: where some of environmentalism’s greatest triumphs – such as the replacement of polluting kerosene with clean solar power – have brought huge benefits to such communities. If the fight against climate change and other existential environmental crises is to get the political prominence it needs, then it has to win support from way beyond the ‘usual suspects’. Craftivist Corbett, campaigner Porritt, farmer Emmanuel-Jones and young wildlife hero Mya-Rose Craig reach out with Martin Wright.

Philipp Blom

La importancia de la Ilustración: Gente peligrosa.

Xalapa 2013, 
Vivimos en una sociedad creada alrededor del pensamiento ilustrado y su apuesta por la razón; en cierta medida, este modelo ha pasado a ser entendido como la “racionalización” de todas las áreas de la vida, en la que los países se confi guran como “economías” y sus ciudadanos como “consumidores”. Este sistema no le sirve a la mayoría de las personas y además ha pasado a ser una especie de religión, que sustituye a los modelos espirituales que antes conformaban la organización de las sociedades, en la que no queda rastro del modelo racional ilustrado. La pregunta es: ¿tenemos alternativas? En su libro Gente peligrosa, Philipp Blom (Alemania) propone rescatar el modelo y enseñanzas de la menos conocida Ilustración radical.

Reformations: The distinction between the arts and science

Querétaro 2017, 

The 30th Hay Festival coincides with the 500th anniversary of the reforms proposed by Martin Luther. In order to celebrate this important milestone in Western critical thinking, we have asked a number of thinkers to give us a “reform” that would be applicable now. Andrea Wulf will talk about the traditional distinction between the arts and the sciences, proposing a reformation of this classic separation of disciplines and questioning why the imagination is not present in science. Followed by a question and answer session with Peter Florence.
