DRUGAJANJE: Gregor Moder: ANTIGONE
‘How can reading Antigone help us navigate through the problems of the modern world? We need to be very clear on that – it cannot help us at all.’ The introductory emphasis of the philosopher Gregor Moder’s essay, which the author performs together with Katarina Stegnar, seems to question the point of what they are doing. But philosophy likes to dig in places where digging seems pointless, even more, it is there where it usually digs out the most valuable knowledge. In the never-ending task of understanding the moment, we will use Sophocles, Hegel, a cube and a shovel to help us. Without the latter, digging cannot even be attempted.
