Qualified Philosophy Teacher
The contemporary world is fascinating. It is filled with promise but also with mirages and illusions. To live here, to work here, to love it, it seems to me necessary to have a vision of humanity that can grasp its full value.
What is the pursuit of wisdom, if it is not to live to the maximum hope that one can place in every person?

What did I take away from the IPC? Freedom of speech, active listening skills, an approach to people and their work that is both global and balanced, strong and well-argued moral certainties, an ability to put problems into perspective…
So many assets that I make use of today to make decisions concerning people and their future or to advise business managers.

Learning about logic and rhetoric has enabled me to feel comfortable formulating social problematics. As a social worker, it is not just a question of understanding the difficulties of adapting to new economic and social realities. My task consists of redynamizing the person, by going beyond the mere acknowledgement of the existing difficulties to get a better idea of their potential and inner resources. It is then a truly Aristotelian process.

The IPC taught me to look for what lies at the heart of others’ thinking. Writing an article is above all about understanding that thinking and translating it into words simple enough to be read by the widest audience…
The journalist must remain free… This freedom of mind is in my opinion one of the major assets of realist philosophy.
And thus of the IPC.
