dc.description.abstractCOURSE OBJECTIVES: This course will focus on philosophical concepts and themes that arise from classical biblical narratives. Through closely examining these topics, students will arrive at a deeper understanding of text as well as achieve a greater appreciation of the relationship between philosophy and Judaism. The narratives and passages that have been selected will allow us to reflect on a variety of fascinating problems, such as the development of the human persona, the ethical nature of divine command, asceticism and the religious value of pleasure, divine intervention and theodicy. Seminars will be discussion-based with the intention of fostering student’s analytical and critical thinking skills.en_US
