Jack Caputo on Jacques Derrida:

A man who "rightly passes for an atheist" and is also a man of "prayers and tears."

October 9 we are honored to have John D. "Jack" Caputo as our guest. We were delighted to have him with us for a session last year. This year he will be with us three times. October 9, January 8 and April 9. Plan ahead. Mark those dates.

October 9 is Jacques Derrida's death date. Derrida is a highly influential if not totally understood post modern philosopher. Jack Caputo does understand his work. And Jack's own work on radical theology has been influenced by Derrida. I will ask Jack how he has been shaped by Derrida, why Derrida is important, and help us comprehend the "slightly atheistic quasi-Jewish Augustinianism of Derrida." Now if that isn't an enticing and irresistible hook I don't know what is! Don't miss this Second Saturday Conversation.

All are welcome to this free event. No prior experience necessary. If this is your first time joining us what a way to start. And for those who have been part of the conversation you know what to look forward to.

See you October 9.
