Claudine Haroche in conversation with Mito Reyes

The future of sensibility

Querétaro 2023, 

The sociologist Claudine Haroche (France) is emeritus Director of Medical Research at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and is affiliated to the School for the Higher Study of Social Sciences (EHESS) in France. In her book L’avenir du sensible, the author asks about the “sensitive” nature of human beings, based on the Renaissance ideas that have shaped our bodily, emotional and individual identities. Faced with a situation today in which so many of these identities have become fluid, the author examines the profound transformations in ways of being, feeling and thinking in the contemporary world, and reflects on the fate that awaits us, given these changes. At this event with Mito Reyes, Haroche will talk about her areas of speciality, including bodily behaviours, the mechanisms of psychological functioning, and how this affects ways of being and feeling human.
