Event Description

The intense readability and popularity of Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Quartet, and the mystery surrounding its author, can distract us from the work’s heavyweight intellectual achievements.

In this talk, University of Sydney Senior Lecturer in Philosophy Sam Shpall situates this work by discussing some themes in the history of philosophical thinking about love, friendship, and women's freedom - themes that he argues are interestingly framed and critiqued in the Neapolitan Quartet
