Art of conversation After the successful 2015-2016 season on Love, the Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco is coming to the end of its second year, dedicated to the Body. The event will conclude on June 7 and 8 with a conference on the theme of Conversation. What does it mean to converse? How does a conversation differ from mere communication? What are its qualities? Does encouraging people to speak promote peace? What role does speech play in human relationships, both private and public? During an evening held at the Musée Océanographique de Monaco, the jury will announce the title of the winning book and award the 2017 prize to its author. A publishing house will receive an honorary mention, while the Prix Lycéen will go to the best essay written by students from the principality’s high schools, which have participated in the Rencontres since the beginning of the event. Air France is a partner.
