"Philosophical Foundations of the Idea of Solidarity" organized several conversations with Ivone Gebara
On Monday, October 1, the Research Group “Philosophical Foundations of the Idea of Solidarity”, and the Association of Spanish Theologians, offered a lecture, by Ivone Gebara, under the title "Alterity, Difference and Equality".
This theologian of Brazilian origin, a Catholic religious trained in Leuven/Louvain, pointed out in her lecture the urgent need to review the ethical basis of our relationships and behavior. For this she urges us to follow "the path of our innermost being, the place of intimate emotions, of that which is to be found beyond the norm, and which cannot be expressed by the prohibitions of context”.
"It must be, however, the pain felt by people that really moves us. Pain summons us, the cries of the inner being of others reverberate in our inner self and invite us to start a new path: the one that our deepest instincts point out to us" exclaimed the theologian.
