Year 1: A Philosophical Recounting

Susan Buck-Morss

Reclaiming the first century as common ground rather than the origin of deeply entrenched differences- liberating the past to speak to us in another way. Reclaiming the first century as common ground rather than the origin of deeply entrenched differences- liberating the past to speak to us in another way. Conventional readings of antiquity cast Athens against Jerusalem, with Athens standing in for reason and Jerusalem for faith. And yet, Susan Buck-Morss reminds us, recent scholarship has overturned this separation. Naming the first century as a zero point– year one –that divides time into before and after is equally arbirtrary, nothing more than a convenience that is empirically meaningless. In YEAR 1, Buck-Morss liberates the first century so it can speak to us in another way, reclaiming it as common ground rather than the origin of deeply entrenched differences.
