Practical Information

The workshop will be held at the École Normale Supérieure at 45 rue d’Ulm, every Friday from 5:00-7:00 PM, in the salle Celan, except some dates indicated on the calendar, when we will seek refuge in the seminar room of the pavillon Pasteur.

The seminar room of the pavillon Pasteur is situated in the basement of the small building on the right in the surrounding walls of the ENS (enter the ENS, turn right before crossing the main entrance, and you’ll reach the building at the corner of the lawn).

Who can participate in the workshop?
Everyone can participate in the workshop, and attend its weekly sessions, without obligations of regularity or certification. The ATMOC aspires to being both an introductory seminar and a research seminar, in the largest sense. It is not necessary to have a thorough knowledge of contemporary metaphysics and of ontology to participate, but, of course, it is preferable to prepare for the sessions, by reading the texts approached.

Does the workshop count within the framework of the diploma at the ENS or at the EHESS?
No, like all student seminars at the ENS, the workshop does not issue any ECTS points, nor any certification.
