Requirements for Participation

Hebrew Bible and Philosophy


Program Unit Type: Consultation
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Hebrew Bible and Philosophy unit will be hosting two sessions: 1) invited papers from scholars of bible, theology, and philosophy examining the basis for philosophical criticism of Hebrew Bible, and 2) an open call for papers that propose to examine specific biblical texts or the Hebrew Bible as a whole for philosophical content. Preference will be given to proposals that consider neglected philosophical sub-disciplines in Hebrew Bible scholarship (e.g., metaphysics, logic/rationality, epistemology, philosophy of religion). See hebrewbibleandphilosophy.wordpress.com for the motivations of this program unit and examples of examinations of the bible's philosophical content.
