Why? Why not? What if? Asking questions has been the main driver in my life as a woman and as a professor and researcher. The state of the world leaves me dissatisfied, puzzled and uncomfortable. From this stems the capacity to marvel and be amazed – a capacity at the heart of philosophical thinking – in order to be able to “think our times” in their contradictions and challenges, in its practices and its urgencies. Philosophy, and social sciences more broadly, are in my view powerful tools to deepen and question the ways we think, live and work today. I therefore develop a “field philosophy”, embedded in ethnographic and critical approaches, in order to participate in the construction of an engaged and committed research.
