Modern Jewish Philosophy

Reading Group in Modern Jewish Philosophy


For those interested in the philosophical and ethical thought of the French-Jewish thinker Emmanuel Levinas, a Levinas reading group will be meeting fortnightly this term, and all are welcome.

Our first meeting of the term will take place on Sunday, 3 May, from 7:30-9:00 pm, at 3 Trinity Street (opposite Gonville and Caius College). This term, we'll be looking at and discussing Levinas's essay "Transcendence and Intelligibility", which can be found in his collection Basic Philosophical Writings, ed. Peperzak et al (Indiana University Press, 1996). The essay is relatively short (10 pages), but we'll be reading through it carefully and in depth. (A copy of the book is held on reserve at the Divinity Faculty Library, from which you can photocopy the essay.)

If have any questions, or any difficulty accessing the reading, please feel free to be in touch with Daniel Weiss at dhw27@cam.ac.uk. In addition, if you're interested in being involved, but can't make Sunday from 7:30-9:00, please also be in touch, as we may adjust the day/time after the first meeting in accord with what will work best for the majority of interested participants.  If the time works for most people, we'll meet on 3 May, 17 May, 31 May, and 14 June.
