You are invited to the discussion “Night of Ideas 2018 – When Imagination Reigns: The Role of Creative Activities in Society” with the participation of:
• Mr. Alain Patrick Olivier, Professor of Philosophy, University of Nantes
• Mr. Arnaud Mercier, Professor of Political communication, Paris University II
• Mr. Đặng Hoàng Giang, author
• Ms. Phạm Diệu Hương, visual artist
• Mr. Etienne ROLLAND-PIEGUE, consultant for Cooperation and Cultural Action, French Embassy, moderator
Imagination? Does this mean regression in the irrational, in the unorganized? Is it the absence of a clear and precise conception of reality? Or is it the irruption of new ideas, a principle of creativity and survival for society that we must not give up?
Those are the questions that keep emerging in the past centuries about the role of imagination in society. Come discuss them with French and Vietnamese scholars from different fields.
French – Vietnamese dual interpretation will be provided
