This is a plural world

Plural is a think tank dedicated to pluralism. Its mission is to put continental philosophy, postmodernism, and critical theory at the core of any vision for the 21st century, and in particular at the core of its biggest driver of change that is technology.

The think tank, created in 2015, does so through the organisation of events, the conduct of research, and the ideation of digital solutions,

It is a community of pluralists: thinkers, researchers, and activists willing to digress from any prevailing narrative, and to promote pluralism wherever it can be.

So, what exactly is continental philosophy, postmodernism, and critical theory? Describing these school of thoughts would be impossible in such a short introduction. We will just refer to some of their most famous authors: Michel Foucault, Jürgen Habermas, Jean Baudrillard, and Gaston Bachelard.

Plural is not affiliated to any political party; it is committed to pluralism, and the necessary criticism of any power structure.

“The Normal is established as a principle of coercition in teaching with the introduction of a standardized education and the establishment of the écoles normales ; it is established in the effort to organize a national medical profession and a hospital system capable of operating general norms of health; it is established in the standardization of industrial processes and products” Michel Foucault – Discipline and Punish.
