Not in the Heavens: The Tradition of Jewish Secular Thought
Sponsor Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership
Type of Event Education
Description Over the last three centuries, thinkers from Spinoza to Einstein have established a distinctive tradition of Jewish secular thought. Yet secularism did not necessarily mean a total rupture from Jewish religious tradition. Instead, argues Dr. David Biale in Not in the Heavens, secular thinkers appropriated the three religious categories of God, Torah, and Israel and filled them with new, this-worldly meaning.
