Jewishness of Key Intellectuals & Cultural Figures

December 3 , 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Professor Irwin Wall will be looking at the “Jewishness” of Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, and Franz Kafka. All four were born ethnically Jewish and culturally German. To what extent did they identify as Jews, what role did their Jewish origins play in determining the course of their careers, and to what extent did their understanding of Judaism and Jews influence their life work?
