Joris’ work as a philosopher and as an educationalist concerns the revalorisation of human corporeality. He argues that moments during which we coincide with the physical side of our existence grant the opportunity to invalidate every societal structuring of individual and communal life, and to install what he has called a moment of ‘democracy of the flesh’. Joris is interested in the body taken in its full physicality – in a very literal sense: being-entirely-flesh.
