Lecture on Emmanule Levinas

20.02.2011

On Sunday, February 27, at 17:30, the museum hosts the lecture „The glide from outside: Emmanuel Levinas, night, insomnia, a commandment and the space of literature” by Moscow scholar, philosopher and actor cand.sc.philos. Sergey Stepanishchev.
 

The lecture is dedicated to Levinas’ problematization of certain ideas of classical European philosophy, like „day”, „labour”, „action” and other, that according to his views are connected with the sort of „rootedness”, that is characteristic to what he calls „paganism”, from the viewpoint of „expulsion” and „eternal nomad”. The lecture will be followed by a theatre workshop.
