TEDxESTP takes place in the first engineering school in France in the construction industry. For this 6th edition, the main theme is "L'(In)connu".
This theme "L'(In)connu" is part of the union of two sets: the known and the unknown.
The known is part of the current state of our knowledge. What we know today in the different areas of knowledge.The unknown includes everything we don’t know. These are conscious (we know we don’t know) or unconscious (we don’t know we don’t know
know not). Thus, the union of these two sets brings together both our axioms and beliefs the more entrenched, than our most distant assumptions and predictions. It is up to us to check if we are right, to know if we really know what we are
thinks he knows. This theme is an invitation to look at the world from a different angle, to update our cognitive biases,
to step back on the future that awaits us or to dig up forgotten knowledge, until understand the potential limits of knowledge.

Arthur Pillias

Engineering student.
A student of ESTP Paris, he has his heart on his hand. Faced with the unknown of existence, Arthur chose the path of faith and religion. He is not there to convince but to tell you about his personal journey and learning about life experiences. Far from the traditional dogmatic vision of religion, he wants to show us the nuances of these institutions. And maybe, the first answers to the unknown riddle

Sebastien Carassou of the YouTube channel "The Sense Of Wonder" shares with us this motion of astonishment and wonder in the face of the unknown and the sublime. So, what could be better than astrophysics to feel such emotions in the face of the vastness of the universe?

Yannick Cremer of the youtube channel 'Faut le dire vite' described as an amused look at our deep nature... and our desperate attempts to escape it.
