In this course students will study some of the central figures in modern Jewish thought and philosophy. The topics we will be studying are: Moses Mendelssohn and the 18th Century Origins of Modern Jewish Thought; Abraham Geiger's 19th Century Theology of Jewish Emancipation; Franz Rosenzweig and 20th Century Jewish Existentialism; and Emil Fackenheim on the Problem of Faith in God and Man after the Holocaust. 

The course will give focus to the ways in which modern Jewish thought differs from earlier modes of Jewish thinking and the manner in which it reflects the changing cultural, social and political realities of the Jewish historical experience in this period. In addition, the course will investigate the processes through which modern humanist values became an integral part of Jewish discourse as well as the Jewish response to their collapse following the Holocaust.
