テーマ：「On Bonnie Honig's Reading of Antigone」
要 旨： In “Antigone's Two Laws: Greek Tragedy and the Politics of Humanism” Bonnie Honig argues—contra earlier readings of Sophocles's classic play—that Antigone occupies an overtly agonistic, political position in her stance against Creon. Honig's reading of Antigone presents a unique politics of humanism, and has wider implications for recent humanist revivals witnessed in various fields. In this talk I will discuss its relevance for the field of the ethics of care—developed by feminist thinkers such as Joan Tronto, Eva Feder ittay,
Virginia Held, Elizabeth V. Spelman, and more recently Fabienne Brugere—and its critiques of Kantian liberalism and Lockean social contract theory.
