Paneldebatten er en del av IFIKKs (Institutt for filosofi, ide- og kunsthistorie og klassiske språk) to dagers markering av Roland Barthes 100 års-jubileum. 


The Seminar of Aesthetics celebrates the 100th anniversary of Roland Barthes on November 5-6 with lectures, workshops and round-table debates focused on Barthes’ 1977 lecture series Comment vivre ensemble (How to Live Together). The events will take place at the University of Oslo/Blindern and Litteraturhuset (see full program below).

On November 5-6, 2015 The Seminar of Aesthetics will celebrate the French thinker Roland Barthes (1915-1980) with workshops, lectures and a round table debate. The ideological context is Barthes’ extensive manuscript to a series of lectures at the Collège de France in 1977, called Comment vivre ensemble. Simulations romanesques de quelques espaces quotidiens (published 2002; eng. trans. How to Live Together. Novelistic Simulations of some Everyday Spaces, 2013). In this text Barthes develops a particular system of 30 concepts in order to study so called idiorrhythmic life forms, that is, social connections which are capable of protecting the individual’s need for tranquillity and contemplation and at the same time to accept other people’s idiorrhythms. Barthes investigates such life forms from early hermit communities, via Middle age monastic societies up to modern life institutions (like sanatoriums). As Barthes writes, the hermits of ancient times did not only live alone in their isolated places, they also participated in communities and social systems. A parallel situation, or structure, may be found in our own days, e.g. in the big cities, where a vast part of the population live in single households, and participate in society through work or various meeting places. The argument that Barthes outlines for investigating “living together” is highly relevant to reflection on new, modern forms of life.
