Soubor Her Kočovné Filosofické Divadelní Společnosti: A Collection of Plays by the Philosophical Troupe
Jan Váně, Josef Petrželka
Abelard and Heloise
Love, universals, a new written source, deceit and treason – all of that can be seen in a play on the love affair between the philosopher Abélard and his conscientious student Heloise. A recently discovered letter of Abelard reveals that he actually never lost his manhood, but only pretended his bad luck to find peace and quiet for his philosophical contemplations on, among other things, universals.
