Aug. 11th, 2014 - The Grand Inquisitor

You're invited to join Humanists Doing Good in reading and discussing The Grand Inquisitor. It is a section from The Brothers Karamazov, which is a literary work by Russian author/philosopher Fyodor Dostoevsky. The central character in this work is a Grand Inquisitor who arrests Jesus. It is told by Ivan, who questions the possibility of a personal and benevolent God, to his brother Alyosha, a novice monk. The Grand Inquisitor is an important part of the novel and one of the best-known passages in modern literature because of its ideas about human nature and freedom, and its fundamental ambiguity. We also plan to have some general discussion about how everyone thinks Jesus would be treated if he were to come back to the modern world, both as if he were a normal man or as the miraculous (a bit of a thought experiment). This will allow an opportunity for everyone to join in the discussion, even if there hasn't been time to read The Grand Inquisitor.

When: Monday, August 11th at 7 pm

Where: Traders Coffee (666 Patterson)
