The Twosomeness of Life
On Wednesday the 6th February 2002, Professor Gwen Griffith-Dickson delivered a lecture on ‘The Twosomeness of Life at Barnard’s Inn Hall, Gresham College. We must move from ‘The Other’ as a theoretical problematic — to an-other human being as the real person who confronts us and is different. The fundamental importance of ‘relationship’ suggests a new model for consideration of these philosophical and theological issues. This lecture proposes that the fundamental category for future reflection not being ‘substance’, ‘being’, ‘person’, or any of the usual theological and philosophical contenders, but ‘relation’.
Areas covered within this lecture transcript include;
1) Beyond Philosophical Narcisissm
