Irigaray and the Sacrifice of Sacrifice: lecture


Dennis King 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 is a close reading of Luce Irigaray’s seminal essay, “Women, the Sacred, Money.”

This event took place on Feb 5, 2012.
