New Book by ICI Fellow Arianna Sforzini
Publications Arianna Sforzini

What meaning, value, relevance for philosophical thought and political practice is possible to ascribe to the concept of theatrum philosophicum, of “philosophy-theatre”? The present research explores possible answers to these questions starting from the analysis of Michel Foucault’s works. By focusing on the theatrical concepts, texts, tools and stylistic devices used by Foucault, its aim is to investigate how theatre can contribute to philosophy, when philosophy is not meant to become a systematic project but rather a creative practice.
