Abstract

This article focuses on the impossible task of teaching the event, using some ideas from Jacques Derrida, Jacques Lacan, John D. Caputo, and Catherine Keller. It also performs a pedagogical experiment by including some voices or testimonials from former students and others who have experienced this attempt to teach the event. There is a political and philosophical value to this form of education that works as a counter to the positivism of neo-liberal education.
