Inspired by Pierre Bayard’s Œdipe n’est pas coupable (Éditions de Minuit, Paris, 2021), this lecture argues that, although since Antiquity and even more so since Freud, it has been asserted that Oedipus would have killed his father, this accusation does not stand up to scrutiny. By rigorously investigating the circumstances of the murder and revealing the identity of the murderer, Bayard’s book shows a very different take on one of the most seminal moments in the history of Western culture. Following these premises, and rooted in the notion of ambivalence, Dr. Milman’s lecture brings Bayard’s ideas to the fore, while at the same time linking them to contemporary examples, like the movie saga “Star Wars,” through the notion of echo.

The event will be held in English and follows the “Solidarity Weekend” events across the city; light refreshments will be served.
