Welcome To Our New Website! In March 2018, the Department of Jewish Thought launched our new website, featuring updated content about our students, events and faculty research. We invite you to explore and contact us if you have any questions.
The Department of Jewish Thought is dedicated to studying Judaism as an intellectual, ethical and literary tradition, highlighting its importance to the development of Western civilization from antiquity until today. We work to foster inquiry and expand knowledge through scholarship and instruction that makes this tradition available to broader humanities.
The 6th Annual Levinas Summer Philosophy Seminar, on the topic of "Ideology and Justice," seeks 10 scholars of philosophy and/or political philosophy (professors and graduate students) to participate in the round-table seminar, July 2-6, 2018, at the University of Chicago Center in Paris.
