Philosophy Seminar Series
Life as a Movement of Divergence

Speaker: Emre Şan

In the fourth seminar, Life as a Movement of Divergence, we will be focusing on Bergson’s thought in order to examine the distinction between concept and life, which constitutes the basis of important debates in contemporary French philosophy. Then, we will examine the theme of difference, particularly through Deleuze’s interpretation of Bergson, as the elimination of negativity.

Emre Şan received his bachelor’s degree from Galatasaray University, and completed his master’s degree and doctorate at Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. Pursuing a post-doctoral research at École Normale Supérieur following his PhD, Emre Şan’s book on transcendence as a phenomenological problem was published with a preface by Renaud Barbaras (Paris, Mimesis, 2012). The author has published articles in national and international journals and book series, in Turkish, French, English and Spanish, as well as working as an editor in publications on Contemporary French Philosophy. He has been serving as a member of the editorial board of the periodical Cogito, and was awarded the Prix Mercier, presented biennially by L’Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL). Emre Şan is currently an Associate Professor at Istanbul 29 Mayıs University.
