This four-week course led by Cantor Eichaker will explore the book by Professor Jacob Howland, “Plato and the Talmud.” The discussions will focus on stylistic comparisons and determining how the Socratic style of dialogue may have influenced Talmudic exegesis. Professor Howland offers excellent examples that we will study, chart and discuss. This course is more about how we think and how this method provides a foundation for functioning in our daily lives.
