The School of Life Melbourne Secular Sermon Series: Andrea Durbach ON VENGEANCE

The School of Life Melbourne Secular Sermon Series: Andrea Durbach ON VENGEANCE

Andrea Durbach’s sermon focusses on the ways we rationalise capital punishment – and how vengeance manifests in support of this enterprise. She explores the execution of vengeance in different guises or forms. What drives the self-delusion and collective duplicity – and ultimately, the sheer futility – that congregate to justify the taking of life?

“How we direct vengeance – how we harness its energy, simultaneously resisting the pull of denial and compromise – will ultimately mark its alignment with justice.”

Introduction by Paul Capsis.

A co-presentation with Melbourne Conversations.
