Lecture

Irigaray and the Sacrifice of Sacrifice
Dennis King Keenan

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: FREE
 

Keenan, currently Professor of Philosophy at Fairfield University, Fairfield Connecticut, is the author of The Question of Sacrifice (Indiana University Press, 2005). In this concentrated and detailed look at questions surrounding the act of sacrifice, Keenan discusses both the role and the meaning of sacrifice in our lives. Building on recent philosophical discussions on the gift and transcendence, Keenan covers new ground with this exploration of the religious, psychological, and ethical issues that sacrifice entails. His lecture will be a close reading of Luce Irigaray?s seminal essay Women, the Sacred, Money. This event will take place in Cobb hall room 409 (down the hall from the gallery).
