Description:

« Where, O Death, is your victory? » Saint Paul exclaims in his First Letter to the Corinthians. But the victory lies somewhere else… the victory is about salvation. How to understand this injunction nowadays? Is salvation an obsolete concept?… Read more  What would we even need to be saved from, anyway?
Denis Moreau leads a fascinating investigation on the concept of salvation based on philosophical and religious texts. Moses, Saint Paul and Jesus Christ, Descartes, Pascal, Spinoza, Nietzsche, Sartre, Wittgenstein, but also Kurt Cobain, an ad for liquid soap and a down-to-earth description of some of the seven deadly sins… The theme of salvation is much more present in our modern, daily lives than we think it is. Its uses in contemporary thinking can be very surprising, and this road, full of unexpected twists. A true philosophy of salvation for modern times.
