The Seventh Julia Watkin Memorial Kierkeaard Lecture - 7:00 PM. Dittmann Center 305 was presented by Ronald M.Green, Eunice and Julian Cohen Professor for the Study of Ethics and Human Values, Department of Religion, Dartmouth College, on the following subject: Inherited Sin: Kierkegaard on Guilt across Generations
Professor Green offered the following summary of his forthcoming lecture:
"In Either/Or and The Concept of Anxiety Kierkegaard endeavors to rehabilitate the Christian concept of hereditary sin. He does this by reinventing the Antigone story. I seek to interpret Kierkegaard’s arguments and illustrate their validity by drawing on a modern fictional source, the 2010 Oscar-nominated film “Incendies,” by the Quebec director Denis Villeneuve. With the Lebanese civil war as its focus, “Incendies” provides a vivid illustration of how sexuality can entwine with human sinfulness, perpetuate it, and perhaps even redeem it. SPOILER WARNING: This presentation reveals the plot of this surprising film."
