David Le Breton

Passion of Absence

For this second Moments of Being of this season, Flagey welcomes the French sociologist and writer David Le Breton. Known for his texts that touch on the theme of silence and inertia, he describes in his latest book Disparaître de soi. Une tentation contemporaine why so many people these days look for the 'passion of the absence' and remove themselves from society and others. During this lecture, the writer shares his insights about this remarkable human condition.
