On April 19th, the Jewish Studies Center of Baruch College will organize its annual conference "Spinoza's Universe" at the Rosalyn and Irwin Engelman Recital Hall, New York City. This is a free event, but registration is required.
Few philosophers have elicited as much controversy as Baruch Spinoza (1632 – 1677), banished from the Sephardic community for his heretical views. A day of guest speakers will explore his philosophy in the context of the tumultuous world of the 17th Century Holland, and its continued relevance today. Keynote address by author and historian Russell Shorto.
From 10am until 11:45am, the relevance of Spinoza in our current political and social environment will be discussed. Sign up here.
The second session, from 12pm until 1:45pm, will focus on Spinoza’s impact on the Enlightenment and more. Sign up here.
From 5:30pm until 7:00pm, three speakers will explore Spinoza’s relationship to the Jewish community in all its complicated history. Sign up here.
