  Lecture:  On Transience and the Difficulty of Reality

Wednesday 23rd May, 6.pm – 7.30pm, Birkbeck Main Building, Room  B34

We are creatures who — some of the time, in different ways and up to a point — are aware of our own future deaths as well as of the transient nature of all things around us. Even the world can be destroyed: structures of meaning which had lent a sense of life’s value to those who participated in them can decay and fall away.  How does this matter?  Freud thought that this one aspect of human self-awareness could function like a powerful ideology, pervasively distorting conscious experience.  It would seem then that the sense of transience is not one belief among others but a psychic force that can shape a life.  Are there better and worse ways to live with a sense of transience?  And might there be room to think about failures of imagination — as well as imagination as a human excellence — when it comes to living with transience?
