Thursday May 29

1-2pm

Roberts Lecture Theatre 106, Roberts Building, Malet Place

Ampitheatre

Philosophy and theatre are basically twins. They emerged from the same place at the same time: Ancient Greece in the 6th century BC. Since then, they have had a rich and colourful history of collaboration and conflict. This talk by Tom Stern offers a snapshot of that history, looking at particular examples, ancient and modern, to start us thinking about where they have been and where they might be going. A focus will be Nietzsche’s understanding of the significance of tragedy.
