Academic lecture: The Talmud’s Great Dispute of Religiosity
September 15, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
MENACHEM FISCH, professor and director of the Center for Religious and Interreligious Studies Project at Tel Aviv University, has published on the history of science and mathematics, confirmation theory and rationality, and talmudic literature and legal reasoning. In his talk he will explore the Talmud’s dispute of religiosity, the dispute about the very moral perfection of God and his Word. But what can it mean to be religiously obligated, faithful or committed, it asks, to a morally flawed deity and religious system?
