REACT (ANR-20-CE28-0012) is a research project about reactive practices — the practices in which we engage in the face of wrongness, such as punishment, blame, shame, and forgiveness. The project addresses theoretical, normative and empirical questions about these practices, with a specific focus on the normative distortions associated with discrimination. Its aim is to spell out how reactive practices shape our individual and collective agency.


The project involves four research units:

(1) PHARE at Panthéon-Sorbonne University;

(2) NoSoPhi group at Panthéon-Sorbonne University (IJPS CNRS UMR8103);

(3) CAPHI  at Rennes and Nantes;

(4) SISSA Interdisciplinary Laboratory.

(1) The scientific coordinator is Laurent Jaffro, Professor of Moral Philosophy at Panthéon-Sorbonne University, Senior Member of Institut Universitaire de France, Director of PHARE (“Philosophie, histoire et analyse des représentations économiques”, EA7418) at Panthéon-Sorbonne.
(2) Magali Bessone, Professor of Political Philosophy at Panthéon-Sorbonne University, former junior member of Institut Universitaire de France, leads the contribution of NoSoPhi (Normes, Sociétés, Philosophies).
