DWELLING THE WORDS, conversations with Giuseppe Barzaghi o.p.
The conversations with Giuseppe Barzaghi, held in the Conference Room of TECNA’s headquarters, have reached their third appointment.
Fascinating talks in which Barzaghi, as a sort of passionate tourist guide, leads TECNA’s women and men to discover the words, their origin, their sense and meaning, so that they become familiar to us, like our home. This is the reason for the title chosen by Barzaghi for these events, which have the aim of inviting each of us to reflect on the words and, therefore, on the ideas, philosophising without knowing it.
Words, language, thought
Reasoning about words, their origin, meaning and power, is equivalent to reasoning about language and how relationships between people are outlined through the latter. A fundamental aspect of living together valid for any type of community, including corporate ones.
For TECNA, it is essential that people are «trained to think» and that knowledge is not limited to the technical culture necessary to carry out their work. Therefore, this cycle of meetings aims to be an opportunity to broaden one’s horizons relying on a master of thought, an effective disseminator of knowledge and conscience.
