Friday, September 26, 4:30 p.m.
Cantor Film Center, 36 E. 8th St.
For Hegel, Žižek posits, the spirit is the wound of nature- it derails every natural balance, but it is at the time spirit itself that heals its own wound. In his lecture, Žižek will expand upon this Hegelian perspective to consider its philosophical, theological, and political implications: Why is the Fall a happy occurrence? How does permissiveness turn into oppression? Why does only the most brutal capitalist alienation open up the possibility for freedom?
The event is free and open to the public.
