"How does a philsopher set about working on a philosophical problem?"
The Bald Soprano
7pm, Tuesday January 20
CAST (in order of appearance)
The production runs approximately one hour and thirty-five minutes without an interval.
"Perhaps it is philosophically misleading to talk of knowing objects
at all. It may be possible to show that what appears to be an instance
of knowing some object always comes down to knowing that something is
the case. What is known, in this sense, must be true, whereas what is
believed may very well be false. But it is also possible to believe what
is in fact true without knowing it. Is knowledge then to be distinguished
by the fact that if one knows that something is so, one cannot be mistaken?
And in that case does it follow that what is known is necessarily true,
or in some other way indubitable?"
The original production fo La Cantatrice Chauve was at the Theatre des Noctambules, May 11 1950.
