Abstract: In this seminar, we propose to reflect on the hypothesis of a common way of thinking for the Mediterranean's peoples and to consider a concept which, in our view, is a unifying one, which has been mentioned several times but never definitively adopted. A concept that seems to us to be more relevant and better adapted to the modern world because it encompasses and transcends Fernand Braudel's concept of the Mediterranean as a paradigm of space and movement and could provide the basis for an inclusive civilisational project whose touchstone would be a common value capable of building a new humanism.
