To Infinity and Beyond: Psychoanalysis, Philosophy, Literature (the Forum)

7 March, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

What does the infinite mean to us as finite beings? Can we root our thinking in the finite, or does the idea of the infinite always return? Does thinking philosophically about the infinite inevitably lead us to theology? Thinkers from philosophy, psychoanalysis, and literary studies will assess whether the idea of the infinite is something that we should cultivate, avoid, or simply try to understand.

Josh Cohen, Professor of Modern Literary Theory, Goldsmiths, University of London
Tommy Lynch, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy of Religion, University of Chichester
Alenka Zupancic, Researcher, Institute of Philosophy, Ljubljana

Chair
Danielle Sands, Lecturer in Comparative Literature and Culture, Royal Holloway, University of London, and Forum for European Philosophy Fellow
