[cid:image001.jpg@01D212AF.FB3F4490]Dennis Schmidt: What Do We Owe the Dead?
Professor Schmidt will examine some of the most penetrating literary,
philosophical, and artistic presentations of this ethical sense of what we owe
the dead, and to ask what the ethical sensibility might mean and what sort of
conclusions we can draw from it.
Dennis Schmidt is Research Professor of Philosophy at Western Sydney
University. He is the author of numerous books, including Between Word and
Image: Heidegger, Gadamer, and Klee (2016), Idiome der Wahrheit (2012), Lyrical
and Ethical Subjects (2005), and On Germans and Other Greeks (2001).
The respondent will be David Malouf, the acclaimed author of many novels
including Ransom, The Great World (winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ prize
and the Prix Femina Etranger), and Remembering Babylon (winner of the IMPAC
Dublin Literary Award).
