PINC Visiting Scholar – Donna Orange

The Ethics of Hospitality in a Fragile World

Donna Orange, PhD, PsyD

Saturday Apr 13, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

flyerDrawing from the work of three French philosopers—Emmanuel Levinas, Jacques Derrida, and Paul Ricoeur—Donna Orange will explore clinical hospitality. Ricoeur's concept of hospitable translation will be compared to psychoanalytic understanding and emotional availability. Special attention will be given to the ambiguity that develops from intended generosity and compassion. Finally, Orange will examine climate emergency and migration as new and ongoing challenges to ethical hospitality.
