RELIGION 307: Jewish Philosophy
Professor Ronald C. Kiener, Department of Religion
This course provides an introduction to Jewish religious philosophy,
using the method of intellectual history. We will treat philosophical and
theological issues historically and thematically. Throughout this course a
recurring theme will focus on the interaction of world philosophy with Jewish
concerns. We will see this interaction from Antiquity to contemporary times.
We will pay particularly close attention to Moses Maimonides, by most accounts
the greatest of Jewish philosophers.
