Description

Kol Hamevaser presents Dr. Yoram Hazony, President of the Institute of Advanced Study at the Shalem Center, speaking about his new book, The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture. The book proposes a new framework for reading the Bible. It shows how the biblical authors used narrative and prophetic oratory to advance universal arguments about ethics and political philosophy, metaphysics and theory of knowledge. Newly released, The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture provides a series of bold new studies of the biblical narratives and prophetic poetry, transforming forever our understanding of what the stories of Abel, Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David and Solomon, and the speeches of Isaiah and Jeremiah, were meant to teach us.
