The Past 1,000 Years of Jewish Thought
The past millennium has been packed with a range of extraordinary thinkers and ideas in the fascinating realm of Jewish thought. In this five-part series David will outline, explain and explore the major developments of ideas emerging from the great Jewish thinkers, philosophers and mystics of the past millennium. The series will journey from Saadya Gaon to Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, including the works and ideas of the Rambam, Hasdai Crescas, the Ari, the Ramchal, Moses Mendelsohn, Franz Rosenzweig, Martin Buber and many others. David will bring these major thinkers to life by placing them in their historical context and assessing their impact on today’s Jewish world.
This course is normally run as a five-part series. David will require a whiteboard and markers for each of the lectures.
