Forum: Psychoanalysis, Philosophy, Literature

Tuesday 7 March 2017, 6.30-8pm.

Wolfson Theatre, London School of Economics.

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.
