The relationship between philosophy and Jewish thought has often been a matter of lively discussion. But despite its long tradition and the variety of positions that have been taken in it, the debate is far from being closed. On the contrary, it is alive and well, and keeps posing challenges that this conference aims to address.

The central topic of the conference is broken down into three subtopics, each examined in a dedicated section.

The first – “Philosophy AND Jewish Thought” – is to lay the foundation for further reflections, as it is concerned with the basic question of how two such different ways of thinking as the philosophical and the Jewish can relate to each other.

Through the analysis of some exemplary cases, the second section – “Philosophy IN Jewish Thought” – aims to give insights about the contribution of philosophical reasoning to the development of modern Jewish thought.

Finally, the third section – “Jewish Thought IN Philosophy” – is conceived of as complementary to the second, dealing with reception and role of Jewish conceptions in modern philosophy.
