In the Image in the Body: Philosophical Perspectives on Blood Colors, Affect, and Talmud

Roz and Ralph Halbert Endowment in Jewish Studies

Perhaps too squeamish in its focus on ideas and concepts, Jewish philosophy has heretofore had very little to say about the human body. Turning to the rabbis in the Babylonian Talmud and placing its discourse in relation to contemporary thinkers identified with "new materialism" and "materialist feminism," I hope with this talk to explore philosophically the emergence of bodies and bodily viscera as key to understanding the constitution of human subjectivity.

This event is free and open to the public. No registration required. Limited seating.
