Répliques is a podcast broadcast on Radio France Culture. Alain Finkielfraut, writer, philosopher, and academician, presents it. The podcast offers a conversation about philosophical, social, historical, political, and literary issues as well as topics related to the news, often related to the publication of works by the guests.
Répliques invites two guests who compare their points of view on the big and small questions they think about, because of their profession, curiosity, or engagement. Alain Finkielkraut assumes that to understand the issues, to know what to think,to form a personal opinion, it is important to be informed by others and listen silently conversations.
This view is against the interactivity or the systematic use of talking programs. The dominant idea in the media today is that everyone immediately knows what he thinks and wants, immediately. Alain Finkielkraut tries to offer something different, through philosophy and time. Some podcasts have only one guest, sometimes there are up to three guests.
