Pagan Conceptions of the Self with Kadmus
August 8, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The pagan commitment to multiple sources of reality (i.e. multiple divinities) and thus multiple truths about the cosmos has important implications for what it means to be a self. This lecture will consider ancient sources that point to a very different idea of the self than the one we have inherited largely from monotheistic sources. Specifically it will investigate the idea of a multiple and ever-changing self that overlaps and interweaves with the gods and the natural world.
