The Self, the Other, and God in 20th Century Jewish Philosophy: Cohen, Buber, and Levinas with Dr. Yonatan Brafman
Part of our series “The ‘Other’ in Jewish Text and Tradition”
March 8, 2021, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. ET
This session is generously sponsored by Yale Asbell, JTS trustee.
What is the relationship between our self and the other, and where does our relationship to the other Other—God—fit in? Modern Jewish philosophers, including Hermann Cohen, Martin Buber, and Emmanuel Levinas placed the intersubjective relationship—the relationship between persons–at the center of their thinking. Join Dr. Yonatan Brafman to explore their reflections—their similarities and differences—in order to grapple with its implications for Jewish ethics.
Dr. Yonatan Brafman is assistant professor of Jewish Thought and Ethics and director of the MA Program in Jewish Ethics.
