Gnosticism, Lacan, & the Wisdom of the Serpent w/Dr. Agata Bielik-Robson

Dr. Agata Bielik-Robsonm, Professor of Jewish Studies at the University of Nottingham, poetically interrogates Gnosticism and Lurianic Kabbalah with us to reveal how Gnosticism is an essential consequence of monotheism and is deeply embedded in the Bible, in Jewish history and thought, and maybe, in so many unrecognized ways, in much of western philosophy. From the contraction of God to the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan’s “solid hatred addressed to being” to the archons of the symbolic order, Dr. Bielik-Robson unveils the wisdom of the serpent and invites us to read the subterranean bible.
