il Circolo dei Lettori, Sala Gioco | Via Bogino 9, Turin
The need for a basic minimum wage is one of the most burning themes of the present economic crisis. The debate proposed by CEST on this theme will take place on 9 June 2014 at the Circolo dei Lettori (9 pm) and will involve diverse voices, for background and outlook: Ugo Mattei (Professor of Private Law at the University of Turin), Luigi Pannarale (Professor of Sociology of Law at the University of Bari) and Gianni Vattimo (philosopher and politician). The speakers will be questioned by two young scholars: Giacomo Pisani, doctoral student at the University of Turin and author of the volume Le ragioni del reddito di esistenza universale (Ombre corte, 2014), and Paolo Furia, political activist and student of the relationships between philosophy and society. The evening will begin the cultural meetings of the Turin section of CEST.
