Elliot Wolfson is the author of several award-winning books including Through A Speculum that Shines; Open Secret: Postmessianic Messianism and the Mystical Revision of Menahem Mendel Schneerson; and A Dream Interpreted Within a Dream: Oneiropoiesis and the Prism of Imagination. With this lecture, Wolfson will be discussing his new book, The Duplicity of Philosphy's Shadow: Heidegger, Nazism, and the Jewish Other.
In this book, Wolfson intervenes in the current debate about Heidegger's relationship to Nazims and Jews from a unique perspective, as a scholar of Jewish mysticism and philosophy who has been profoundly influenced by Heidegger's work.
