Between Philosophy and Music
Conférence en anglais
The Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco and the European Graduate School jointly propose a discussion on the intricate relationship between philosophy and music, technology and craftsmanship. Through their convergence, we will showcase two exceptional instruments, a Stradivarius and a “Three dollar violin” fabricated in 2019 at the European Graduate School.
This exceptional encounter will also address the distinctive ways in which both institutions transmit philosophical questioning, reflection and practice in such areas.
Following the presentations, Lisa Lee, renowned American violinist, will give a recital featuring the two violins.
