Born from an idea of Giovanbattista Tusa in collaboration with The Philosophical Salon, “Planetary Conversations” is an attempt to re-imagine the shape of an engaged public philosophy for the age of a pandemic and mass quarantines. Putting in touch philosophers, artists and activists we seek to create a space for encounters between distinct places and times that, so we hope, are nevertheless not definitively separate, not definitively lost to each other.

Imagined as a long letter, or as an endless conversation with the Friend, as well as with the Foreigner, philosophy experiences from its very inception the paradoxical condition of being at the same time in the search for a common eccentricity, a remote and unoccupied position, and, together with the other, for an inhabitable planet.

Planetary Conversations include Jean-Luc Nancy, Slavoj Zizek, Claire Fontaine, Amanda Boetzkes, Srecko Horvat, Michael Marder, and more.
