Description

This dinner lecture and discussion with Professor Angela Franks covered 20th-century philosophical and theological perspectives on the body. Professor Franks’ lecture focused in particular on the insights of Karol Wojtyla, the distinctiveness of his vision vis-à-vis the history of philosophical reflection on the body, and his engagement with recent continental philosophy—including Marx, Scheler, Buber, and French personalism—regarding essence and existence, mediation, communion, gift, and the fons signatus. The evening’s discussion, which included many undergraduate and graduate students in philosophy, was lively and lasted several hours.
