Sacrificing the Spectres of History

A lecture by Dr. Joseph Cohen, Associate Professor of Philosophy at the School of Philosophy, University College Dublin; co-founder of Les Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco 

Presented by Mathieu Buchler, Menemozine 

Our lecture will focus on the intricate and complex relationship between sacrifice and history. We will see emerge from this confrontation a novel manner of thinking the singularity of historical events and indeed of reformulating what is meant by temporality and alterity, commemoration and forgiveness, truth and justice. The lecture will, in this sense, propose original considerations on the incessant return of historical events in our present lived experience and further reflections on how to face our future.
