Josep Maria Esquirol in conversation with Pablo Quintanilla

Hay Fórum Digital Moquegua
Read more

The Catalan philosopher and professor Josep Maria Esquirol is the author of a large body of work that, among other things, explores the links between philosophy and psychiatry, and sets out a philosophical proposal that he calls filosofía de la proximidad or “nearness philosophy”. His book La resistencia íntima is a moving essay about the human condition, of great relevance for contemporary living and the “monochrome nature of a technified world”. According to Esquirol, this is countered with self-care and nearness as resistance, as a guide, light and warmth for those who are nearby, giving primacy to the everyday and home life over the virtual, technified links that take up so much of contemporary existence. His most recent book is Humano, más humano (2021), which reflects on the four essential infinitudes of human experience: life, death, you, world. He will talk to the Peruvian philosopher Pablo Quintanilla.

A Brief History of Tomorrow (2016) and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century (2018), titles that have been translated into 60 languages and have sold over 30 million copies. The Israeli writer, historian and philosopher, Doctor in History from Oxford University and lecturer at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, is one of the most incisive thinkers today, able to articulate some of the most critical themes from human history and civilization in his books, covering everything from religion to technology, from the invention of agriculture to the arrival of capitalism. In his most recent publication, Sapiens. A Graphic History (2021), Harari adapts his acclaimed work Sapiens into visual language, telling the human story in images with the help of his fellow writer David Vandermeulen and the illustrator Daniel Casanave. In this first volume of what is set to be a graphic series, Harari covers the early period of humanity and presents our distant relatives, the Neanderthals.
