II Annual Conference of AELab "Faces of the Self: Autobiography, Confession, Therapy"

November 24-25, 2016

Complex and variegated forms of representing and revealing the self - in which the boundaries of disciplines are blurred - have a rich and often overlooked history. This international conference addresses the intersections between philosophy, literature, arts and therapy through the prism of certain self-revelatory forms, such as autobiography and confession. The title ‘Faces of the Self’ points to the enigmatic relationship between truth and lying, concealing and revealing, and the masking and unmasking of the idea of a person. Our discussion can focus not only on the well-known quasi-autobiographical philosophical texts such as Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, Augustine’s Confessions, Descartes’s Meditations, Kierkegaard’s Point of View, Nietzsche’s Ecce Homo, Wittgenstein’s Culture and Value, and Derrida’s Circumfession; but also on lesser-studied poets, writers, artists and historical figures whose letters, pictures, documents and journals help us towards a more nuanced understanding of how consciousness, gender, race, sexuality, and (dis-)location figure in the quest for expression and absolution.

As múltiplas e complexas formas de representação e revelação do si - nas quais as fronteiras entre disciplinas se esbatem - têm uma história rica e muitas vezes negligenciada. Esta conferência internacional aborda as intersecções entre a filosofia, a literatura, as artes e a terapia, através do prisma de certas formas de auto-revelação, como a autobiografia e a confissão. O título, "Rostos do Si" aponta para a relação enigmática entre verdade e mentira, escondimento e revelação, máscara e desmascaramento da ideia de uma pessoa. A nossa discussão poderá focar-se, não apenas nos textos filosóficos quasi-autobiográficos mais conhecidos - como as Meditações de Marco Aurélio, as Confissões de Santo Agostinho, as Meditações de Descartes, o Ponto de Vista de Kierkegaard, o Ecce Homo de Nietzsche, Cultura e Valor de Wittgenstein ou Circunfissão de Derrida -, mas também em poetas, escritores, artistas e figuras históricas, cujas cartas, imagens, documentos e jornais nos ajudam a obter uma compreensão mais nuanceada da forma como a consciência, o género, a raça, a sexualidade, e a (des-)localização operam na busca de expressão e absolvição.
