What Is It To Redeem Your Past? Lessons from Nietzsche and Kundera (MLF)
Monday, September 8, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 7:15 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Lanier Anderson, Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, Stanford University
Monday Night Philosophy focuses on the ancient issues raised by the human ability to remember our pasts. Should it exert a heavy burden upon the present, or light the way to a better future? Though neither extreme is commonly indulged, redeeming ourselves from our apparently unredeemable pasts does get a lot of cultural attention. Straight from Stanford's The Art of Living course, hear Professor Anderson's views on Friedrich Nietzsche's and Milan Kundera's insights into one version of redemption.
