Is physical failure the rebellion of the body?

F.Galichet, E.Grospiron, Y. Rossetti, A-M.Pascoli

The body, an instrument honed by youth, displays resistance to the will in old age or after injury, and denies the desire for omnipotence.
This round table will begin with the testimonials of former high-performance dancers and sportsmen, or handicapped authors who have reflected on their experience: In such cases, how can it free itself? Can one imagine the following paradox: It is only when confronted with the limits of the body and the need for an internal dialogue that liberation can occur by surpassing the norms for performance and aesthetics?

In collaboration with Fabienne Martin-Juchat, Professor of Information and Communication Sciences at the University of Grenoble Alpes, researcher with the Groupe de Recherche sur les Enjeux de la Communication (GRESEC) and Thierry Ménissier, Professor of Philosophy at the University Grenoble Alpes, member of the research team “Philosophie, Pratiques & Langages”.
