The Prophets as Sources of Philosophic Inquiry

Mon, December 17, 8:30 to 10:00am, Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center, Cambridge 1

Session Submission Type: Panel Session

Abstract

I am proposing a session entitled “The Prophets as Sources of Philosophic Inquiry.” The contributors will take up both moral and epistemological questions that arise from prophetic literature. These questions range from the standards for determining who is a true and who a false prophet, Jeremiah’s conception of the ideal life, and the claim that the prophets exaggerated the extent of Israel’s moral decline. The philosophers to be discussed include Plato, Maimonides, Kant, Cohen, Buber, and Heschel.
