The Divine Comedy: Love in Heaven and in Hell (Kintore College talk + Q&A)
Kintore College invited me to give a talk on love as the driving force of human existence as part of their Philosophy and Literature program. Since many found it useful I decided to repost it on my channel, also including the Q&A section at the end.
In this talk I discuss love within the frame of Dante’s Divine Comedy, C.S. Lewis’ The Great Divorce and Plato’s Symposium.
