What Thinking Does?

Taking different spheres of philosophy as starting points, the aim of these series of seminars on philosophy is to attempt answering the question, what thinking does. The twentieth century was a century of intense theoretical transformation that was marked by an unprecedented creativity. However, by the end of the century, we witnessed a decline in the deterministic use of reason, and that reasoning was circumscribed by instrumentality and calculability. Nevertheless, as we have learned from the history of philosophy, the mind does not only have analytical but also synthetic judgements, and starting from the objectives it has set, it can think of the incalculable. In this context, throughout the series of seminars, we will be considering the particularities of thinking and what thinking means today.
