Columbia University

Public Lecture: “Sparta and Gaza”

Athens and Jerusalem: There is perhaps no more concise way of understanding the political tradition of which we see ourselves the inheritors: democracy and individualism, human rights. It is an active and proactive tradition, a tradition of power and rule, of political activity which makes and remakes the political subject, the political community. In this lecture, Prof. Anidjar will raise the question of weapons (akin to, but not identical with, the question of war) in order to consider another face of that tradition, another trajectory: Sparta and Gaza.
