13/13 Seminar Series

At each session, two or three guests, from different disciplines, are invited to discuss the readings and present on the themes of the seminar, after which there is an open discussion on the presented themes and questions. Each seminar will host specialists from across the disciplines, from Columbia University and from outside campus. It will also frame and interrelate with a Paris Reading Group that will run alongside the seminar.

13/13 | THE SPACE OF PRAXIS

Wednesday, May 8, 2019

This year’s 13/13 seminar series will take this problem as its task: to buck centuries of contemplative complacency and return praxis to its proper place in the order of things. In doing so, the seminar will strive to address the most critical question today: What is to be done? And what exactly is critical praxis today?
