IAI panel: Trouble with Heaven: Why does the dark and dangerous attract us?


Trouble with Heaven:
Why does the dark and the dangerous attract us?

From Milton’s Paradise Lost to bad boys and femmes fatales, we are seduced by the dark and dangerous. Why does the devil have all the best tunes? Have we sanitised the good and made it vacuous, through religion as well as philosophy? Could we imagine a world where the good was exciting, dramatic and fun? Or are danger and denial somehow essential to being alive?

The Panel
Moral philosopher Christopher Hamilton, theologian and Zizek collaborator John Milbank, and author of Post-Human Ethics Patricia MacCormack debate darkness and light.
