PhilosophySunday 25 november at 11:30

With Laurent DE SUTTER
Pour en finir avec la loi

ThalieLab invites a philosopher to discuss a news topic, analysed through the lens of his or her research in order to bring a new perspective to the media speech.

Law and philosophy have never ceased to dance a wary tango, regarding each other as enemies to be conquered. In inventing the idea of law, Greek philosophy enacted a decisive gesture to provide for the law – but it is a gesture whose violence has not been sufficiently considered yet.

Laurent de Sutter is Professor of Law Theory at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. His work focuses on the cultural history of law, in particular the link between law and transgression in the history of European legal culture. He is the author of many books, which have been translated into a dozen languages – including L’âge de l’anesthésie (Les Liens Qui Libèrent, 2017), Après la loi (Puf, 2018) and Pornographie du contemporain (La Lettre Volée, 2018).

The encounter will be followed by a dedication of his last book Après la loi (Puf, 2018).
