Burial At Thebes - Questions

The questions that follow provide potential points of departure for discussions - during Orientation between the incoming students and the faculty, and at various moments during the academic year - in the classroom, the residence and dining halls, or just over a cup of coffee. These questions are not intended as limitations to your thinking about the profound issues raised by The Burial at Thebes, but merely starting points along a journey of discovery. The electronic forum linked above lists the questions that follow; we also welcome suggestions in the forum for additional questions so that others might consider them, and we encourage you to continue to probe the fundamental dilemmas raised by the play during the coming year.
Antigone, Law, Justice and the Human Condition

Antigone and the Liberal Arts

Antigone, the family and the state
