Nine Talmudic Readings by Emmanuel Levinas @ 8 pm
October 24, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until December 19, 2018
Nine Talmudic Readings by Emmanuel Levinas: Nine readings of the Talmud by the French Jewish philosopher Emmanuel Levinas translate Jewish thought into the language of modern times. Here Levinas applies a hermeneutic that simultaneously allows the classic Jewish texts to shed light on contemporary problems and lets modern problems illuminate the texts. Besides being quintessential illustrations of the art of reading, the essays express the deeply ethical vision of the human condition that makes Levinas one of the most important thinkers of our time.
