The Camden Philosophical Society’s 2016 Film, Lecture, and Discussion Series continues Tuesday, July 26, at 7 p.m. with a screening of “Transfigured Night: A Conversation with Alphonso Lingis” (2013, UK/USA) in the Picker Room of Camden Public Library. Admission is free and open to the public.

“Transfigured Night,” directed and edited by Hugo Glendinning and Adrian Heathfield, is the record of an exchange between the celebrated American philosopher and anthropologist Alphonso Lingis; and performance theorist Adrian Heathfield. The 60-minute film assembles a rich patchwork of fragments taken from their dialogue over a period of two days at Lingis’ house near Baltimore.

In the film, Lingis makes dynamic forays into thoughts that have preoccupied him in his more than 40 years as a writer and traveler, drawing on his influences in phenomenology and ethics; and his extensive encounters with many places and cultures.

Lingis is the author of 14 major works including “The Community of Those Who Have Nothing in Common,” “The Imperative,” “Dangerous Emotions,” “Trust” and “Violence and Splendor.” Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Penn State University, he also is the preeminent English translator of the works of Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Emmanuel Levinas.
