Topics in Philosophy and Jewish Thought - Theories of Judaism and Jewishness

This seminar explores philosophical and theoretical investigations into the meaning and function of "Judaism" and "Jew"--not only as terms used in the empirical study of historical and modern phenomena, but especially as they intersect and inform 20th- and 21st-century debates about identity, difference, and politics. Readings by Franz Rosenzweig, Emmanuel Levinas, Jacques Derrida, Vivian Liska, Cynthia M. Baker, and others. Syllabus and updates will be posted to my homepage: http://socserv.mcmaster.ca/danahol/
