Truth in Politics – Louise Antony (UMass Amherst) 7:30 pm
Truth in Politics – Louise Antony (UMass Amherst) @ Brooklyn Public Library, Dweck Center
Mar 15 @ 7:30 pm
“Is Truth Dead?” asked Time Magazine last year. Since people clearly care about the truth, at least in mundane matters, truth is alive. If an airline agent tells you the flight to Dallas is leaving from Gate B16, you expect the flight to Dallas to be leaving from Gate B16, and complain sorely if it’s not. But if the truth does still matter, why do we elect people who don’t seem to care what the truth is? The answer to this question, argues philosopher Louise Antony, has partly to do with the structure of human knowledge, and partly to do with the structure of our society. We can’t do anything …

Magical Art: The Power of Images in Hitchcock’s Vertigo 6:00 pm
Magical Art: The Power of Images in Hitchcock’s Vertigo @ Cornelia Street Cafe
Mar 19 @ 6:00 pm
Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo is a brilliant, suspenseful mystery exploring the often dangerous intimacy between love, compulsion, and death.  It is also a profound meditation on the power of art.  While it invites us to go on seeing art as a mimesis – a “representation,” or “imitation” of life – it also cryptically asks whether art objects might do more than merely represent life, even whether they might exercise power over death. James Stewart’s Scotty has been compared to Orpheus in quest of Eurydice; I suggest that he’s worth comparing to Admetus, who wished he could be Orpheus, and who imagines clinging to a statue to recapture his lost wife.
