EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS. WE HOPE TO RESCHEDULE FOR THE FALL.

a Zoom presentation by Yehudah Mirsky (Brandeis University)

The more we try to understand the profound present crisis of liberalism, the more we see that not only liberalism, but nationalism, environmentalism, and many other modern ideologies rest on deep but unstated understandings of the very definition of human personhood. Moreover, these understandings are in dialogue with all manner of theologies: sometimes drawing on them, sometimes dissenting sharply from them. This talk will try to illuminate aspects of these profoundly consequential engagements by way of a several 20th century and contemporary Jewish thinkers.
