JWST 108R - (HP) Modern Jewish IntellectualsSemester Hours: 3
An examination of major Jewish intellectuals from the period of the Jewish Enlightenment (ca. late 18th century) to the present. An initial inquiry as to the definition of the term “intellectual” leads us to the larger question of the Jewish intellectual and his or her relation to the Jewish and non-Jewish world. Among the figures to be read are Karl Marx, Theodor Herzl, Emile Durkheim, Franz Kafka, Georg Simmel, Sigmund Freud, Anzia Yezierska, Rosa Luxemburg, Simone Weil, George Steiner, Hannah Arendt, Philip Roth, Amos Oz, Cynthia Ozick, and Saul Bellow.
