OCTOBER 1, 2021 - WHAT IS TO BE CLOSE? - MICHEL GROSSETTI
“What is it to be close? The notion of proximity in a reflection on social entities, relationships and processes ”
Michel Grossetti is a sociologist, director of research at Cnrs and director of studies at Ehess. He works on networks of relationships between people or between groups and on innovation activities with a questioning of their inclusion in geographic space.
In the social sciences, the notion of proximity has since long, not only been reduced to geographic distance (in its various forms). Sociologists very early on developed the notion of “social space” as a system of relationships and social relations. Economists have also sought to theorize the articulation between proximity in geographical space and other forms of proximity, in social, economic relations, etc. Defining a principle of proximity implies specifying the entities it concerns and therefore, in fact, defining an ontology. This presentation will be based on a reflection on the categories used to describe social activities (https://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-02523130v4 for an introduction and https://halshs.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal -02510894 / for a chapter devoted to space) to propose a possible approach to proximities.

Psychosociologist, doctor and HDR (authorized to supervise research) in philosophy, Chris Younès is a professor at ESA (Special School of Architecture, Paris), founder and member of the Gerphau laboratory (EA 7486, ENSA Paris-la-Villette) , and the PhilAU Thematic Scientific Network (Ministry of Culture, ENSA Clermont-Ferrand). Co-founder and member of ARENA (Architectural Research European Network), and member of the Scientific Council of EUROPAN.
His work and research develop the question of places to inhabit at the crossroads of nature and artefacts, ethics, aesthetics and politics. She has edited more than twenty collective publications, and authored numerous articles and books, including: Architectures of existence. Ethics. Aesthetic. Politics, Hermann, 2018.
Taking the vulnerability and interdependence of living things seriously revives the potential for new proximities in the redevelopment of inhabited environments. Relationships are a keystone. In particular, we will consider three interactive layers in the processes at play: reliance as a synergistic intensity against a dualistic thought; the connection between near and far, between physical and mental mobility; the reactivation of open spaces in which the encounters and passages to be made are of an ethical, aesthetic and political nature.
