Professor Carlo Ginzburg (Scuola Normale, Pisa):
On Montaigne. The Wave, the Diagram: Depicting Life (and Death)
In this lecture, Professor Ginzburg does a close analysis of the context in which the “Apology for Raymond Sebond,” the most famous of Montaigne’s Essays, emerged; this will pave the way to a new reading of the central, half-concealed argument of the “Apology.”
Lecture length: approximately 1 hour. To be followed by a question and answer period.
