ABOUT THE EVENT:

How much can the individual transform without the role of an outside call? How do we navigate the fine line between rebuke and shaming? Appropriating a plethora of voices from the Biblical text to modern psychologists and philosophers, this lecture explores the role of the individual and society in our ethical decisions, grappling with the psychological consequences of living in shame v guilt cultures and offers a radical reading of the ‘other’ as a mechanism towards self transformation.
