This Month's Topic: I Think Therefore I Ask — Reading Torah as Philosophy

While today we are accustomed to learning about the Torah’s moral, legal and ethical teachings, philosophers outside the Jewish world have studied our sacred texts for more than 500 years in search of other insights. In this session, we will explore why what has come to be known as “Hebraic thought” continues to engage 21st century scholars. How did the Hebrew Bible create foundational ideas in domains ranging from political philosophy to theory of knowledge? Why did 17th century Christian theologians look to the Talmud for answers to questions still debated today? Join us as we learn more about our own heritage by viewing the intellectual world of ancient Israel through a philosophical lens.

Join in this lunchtime series that explores topics at the intersection of philosophy, Jewish thought and contemporary issues. This is an interactive lunchtime discussion. All are welcome. For more information, please contact Shelley Hebert.
