On Thursday the 30th of January, Victoria Camps and Salvador Giner will discuss the concepts of Myth, Symbol and Cult as expounded by philosopher Raimon Panikkar
Since the 12th of September, 2013, the Sala Cotxeres of the Palau Robert has been hosting a series of eight sessions dealing with the Panikkarian Dialogs, one for each of the volumes which Fragmenta Editorial has so far published of the eighteen that comprise the Opera Omnia Raimon Panikkar. In each of the sessions two invitees discuss a particular aspect of the philosopher’s work and the series continues on Thursday the 8th of January at 7 pm with an examination of the volume Myth, Symbol, Cult (Fragmenta, 2009) by Victoria Camps and Salvador Giner.
A doctor in philosophy, science and theology, Pannikar is one of the thinkers who has contributed most to the concept of inter-religious and inter-cultural pluralism and dialog through a collection of more than fifty books and fifteen hundred articles. Panikkar served as professor in a number of European, North American and Indian universities and his works have been celebrated in a number of monographic conferences. He is reputed to be the most widely-known Catalan philosopher since Ramon Llull and was awarded much recognition during his lifetime, including honorary doctorates from many universities.
The series has been organised by the Raimon Panikkar Vivarium Foundation, the Institució de les Lletres Catalanes and Fragmenta Editorial with the collaboration of the Barcelona Humanities Institute and Casa Asia and three further sessions will be held between now and April.
