Events | Spinoza and Judaism: Heretic or Hero?

Thursday, March 15, 2012. 7:30 pm.

Religious Jews revile him as the arch-heretic while secular Jews, from Yiddish Socialists and Bundists to liberal Zionists have celebrated him for more than a century as a precursor and hero. Or was he just trying to reform European Christendom? Join the discussion about Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677) with professors Steven Nadler, Allan Nadler, and Carlos Fraenkel.

Leacock Building, McGill University Campus, Room 26.

Free admission. All are welcome.


Baruch: you love him or you hate him.
