Title / Titel The authentic. Constructing truth in the secular world
PDF Abstract (PDF, 14 KB)
Summary / Zusammenfassung Congress
Recourse to authenticity has acquired outstanding significance in current debates. Invoking authenticity serves as an act of validation, from the sciences to the arts, from the media to everyday, banal situations. This conference subjects the concept of authenticity, often used ideologically, to an analysis leading to fundamental reflection about how truth functions in modern times.
