Tales of the other: Philip K. Dick

may sun 30, 2010 - 6.30 p.m.
piazza del Duomo
 admission euro 3.00

One of the other’s most disturbing qualities is not his difference from us - on the contrary, it is his resemblance to us. Philip K. Dick, master of illusions and supreme theologian and philosopher of science fiction, has devoted many of his stories and novels to non-human characters, such as the androids in Blade Runner, or post-human characters, as mutants. The latter are a source of terror and attraction, of repugnance and veneration, depending on the specific powers they hold. Mutants represent the ultimate metamorphosis of humans - an otherness that is all the more threatening as it springs from within the species and its evolution. Dick’s fantasy of the mutant is one of the most perfect and memorable incarnations of this fascinating threat, impossible to tame, half-way between a lethal weapon and a philosophical challenge. Readings from P.K. Dick by Sonia Bergamasco will be commented by Emanuele Trevi.

Tales of the ‘other’: Joseph Conrad

may sat 29, 2010 - 9.00 p.m.
piazza del Duomo
 admission euro 3.00

All Joseph Conrad’s works are brimming with powerful symbols of otherness. And if it is fair to say that all men are equal when they face the ultimate questions, nonetheless within each single individual - within each ‘other’- there is a boundary beyond which everything is unpredictable, where darkness as thick as that of tropical forests engulfs the light of reason and the demands of civilization. In its innermost essence, therefore, Conrad’s work is a superb gallery of individuals depicted in their uniqueness. The encounter of different ethnicities and cultures may generate wonderful paradoxes, as in the 1897 story entitled Karain, where whites end up behaving like sorcerers whereas the proud Asian pirate - a sort of Sandokan withot a Yanez - suffers from the most Western and bourgeois of all ailments: depression. Readings from J. Conrad by Fabrizio Gifuni will be commented by Emanuele Trevi.
