Michael L. Morgan, "Jewish Dialogical Philosophy"

Senator Jerahmiel S. and Carole S. Grafstein Visiting Chair in Jewish Philosophy Inaugural Lecture

In the 20th century, several Jewish philosophers and thinkers employed the idea of interpersonal dialogue to understand the relationship in Judaism between the human and the divine. But there is an ethical significance to this motif that has not been fully appreciated. It is a reason for reconsidering Jewish dialogical philosophy in a different way, as having made an important contribution to the question why moral considerations have the status that many of us take them to have.

Presented by the Anne Tanenbaum Centre for Jewish Studies and the Department of Philosophy
