INAF 199 - Intro to Jewish Civ
An exploration of the fundamental political, cultural, and religious ideas that have served to define Jewish Civilization from biblical times to the present. Special attention is paid to stasis and dynamism in Jewish thought, the interaction of Jews with their host societies, and tensions within national and transnational Jewish communities. By reading religious texts, philosophical treatises, works of literature, as well as scholarly appraisals of them, this course attempts to understand what Jewish civilization is, how it has changed and/or evolved, and how it has influenced the Occident.
