Human Nature & Judaism’s Revolutionary Ideas:
A Philosophical Read of Sefer Breishit

Sefer Bereishit contains truths about the human condition that remain as relevant today as they were thousands of years ago. With an eye towards the ancient world, its culture, and belief systems, this course will take a close look at assumptions the Tanakh subverts, and revolutionary concepts it introduces. Join us as we study the texts that have transformed humanity’s understanding of the world and its place within it. The seminar will utilize classic commentators alongside new philosophical interpretations, including Prof. Leon Kass’ The Beginning of Wisdom.

Dates: Oct 26, Nov 9, Nov 16, Dec 7, Dec 21, Dec 28
