IS SUICIDE THE "REAL" PHILOSOPHICAL PROBLEM? 

What does having a "lived life" mean? What is the relationship between creation and the "struggle for life"? Is the presence of death and the memento mori a threat or an opportunity? How do we voice the taboo without stigmatising ourselves? 

 
GUESTS
Manuel Guerrero Brullet, Santiago López Petit (online) and Elena Serrano
 
Manuel Guerrero Brullet has a degree in Romanesque Philology from the University of Barcelona and is a prolific curator of exhibitions, manager of cultural institutions, journalist, translator and author, among others, of a biographical essay concerning J. V. Foix.
 
Santiago López Petit is a chemist and philosopher, and was until recently a lecturer in philosophy at the University of Barcelona. He was a labour autonomy activist in the 1960s, and has been involved in resistance movements since the crisis of the labour movement.
 
Elena Serrano is a family doctor and the co-author of the document Per un abordatge social i sanitari del suïcidi [For a social and health approach to suicide], published by the FoCAP mental health working group.

LAST SESSIONS
 
DOES OUR PRESENT HAVE A FUTURE?
Using the tools of thought and representation, how do we interpret a possible oracle that goes beyond dystopian fiction? Why have we as children of the post-human condition replaced "where" with the question of "how long"? How do we create scenarios for utopia without indulging in naivety?
 
GUESTS
Jorge Riechmann and Carlota Subirós
 
Jorge Riechmann, a tenured lecturer in moral philosophy at the UAM (Autonomous University of Madrid), is a poet, essayist on ecological thought and a former director of the Spanish Sustainability Observatory when it was being established.

The Teatre Lliure is consolidating its space for dialogue and critical thinking with eight new sessions of the Escola de pensament [School of Thinking], moderated by the philosopher, essayist and professor Marina Garcés and the writer, journalist and cultural activist Albert Lladó. Gràcia is gaining a reputation as a meeting point of theatre and thinking, a space for reflecting on contemporary conflicts with both local and international experts. All eight sessions will be held between October and June. Now in the autumn, we’re asking just two.
