Sophocles and the Grammar of Human Identity | The Text: Oedipus Tyrannus
Father Francisco Nahoe
In his discourse on poetics, Aristotle famously underscores the exemplary place of Oedipus. The twenty-four centuries of subsequent cultural development have not diminished the light which this Sophoclean tragedy casts upon the fragile identity of man. Father Francisco Nahoe will explore the astonishing vitality of an early canonical work and its importance to the systematic study of foundational problems in reading, writing, and riddling.
