Sexual Difference and the Ontology of Peace


In this presentation, Dr Brendan Triffett explores the complementarity of the two sexes in their differences, as well as an ontology of peace. He elaborates by contrasting the vision of Christ and the philosophy of John Milbank with the philosophy and vision of Nietzsche. Triffett also discusses preternatural man and woman in the early chapters of Genesis and their peaceful coexistence within a shared space.
