Glimpses into Existence: Gabriel Marcel
This Saturday from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM
In this series of monthly lectures and discussions, Gregory Sadler will guide participants through classic texts, main themes, and key ideas of existentialist writers. The twelfth and final lecture, "Existentialist Faith, Hope, and Charity," will look at the works, life, and thought of a later Existentialist thinker, the French philosopher and playwright, Gabriel Marcel. We’ll look at Marcel’s “Christian Socratic” version of existentialism, his conception of existence as mysterious rather than absurd, his warnings about modern technology, and the space he opens for a renewed understanding of the traditional virtues of faith, hope, and charity.
