On Three: On Friendship as a Way of Life

In »3 – Ein Leben außerhalb« [tr: 3 – A Life Beyond], translated into German by Andrea Hemminger, Geoffroy de Lagasnerie celebrates friendship. He explores its role in politics and society and how it enables new ways of living. Drawing on Aristotle, Montaigne, and Foucault, he develops his own philosophy of friendship. Together with Didier Eribon and Édouard Louis, with whom he is close friends, de Lagasnerie discusses how friendship can serve as an alternative way of life beyond couple relationships and family.

Hosted by Sonja Finck.

The event will be interpreted simultaneously from French into German by Lilian Astrid Geese and Sebastian Weitemeier. The event is a collaboration with S. Fischer Publishing and the Institut français Berlin.
