Love & War in a Sad Time: Philosophical and Psychoanalytic Inventions – with Bracha Ettinger
War has now become our reality. It is no longer a ‘knowledge’ transmitted to us from history books and assessed as if from a calm distance. We cannot escape its horrors. Millions of people lost their homes, thousands were killed – and violence continues. A painful knowledge is actively constructed by each one of us, shared through our conversations. This three-weeks philosophical and psychoanalytic lecture and discussion series will explore the following two questions: (1) what knowledge is relevant to what is at stake in times of war?, and (2) how can love survive a war? Join us as we try to invent a way to address war in a time of war.
