it looked like something of the sort. *wags finger* tut, tut. well, anyway, no harm done. a lot of people use this place as if it's a clearing-house for daft press-releases about their upcoming book/lecture/the latest message they've had from G!D or their toaster.intention was actually to elicit feedback on what is, in fact, a term paper I am planning to submit for a rabbinics course. And, I'm happy to say that I was richly rewarded!
well, yes, but it's more his political judgement that sucks. by the standards of antisemitism, his is fairly negligible when you consider his willingness to learn from judaism; at least imho.I'm not familiar enough with Jung's views to relate them confidently to Judaic teaching (though critics have always had dark thoughts about Jung and his view of the Jews, as you doubtless know).
hmmm...i kind of agree, only i think there are a large number of criticisms that one might make of leo baeck. anyway, fair enough.As for Freud--author of "Moses and Monotheism"--I think Freud had a good "academic" understanding of Judaism, but I don't know that he really grasped its "essence" (as Leo Baeck would later do).
yes, i'd love to see that. tell me,was bruno bettelheim a C-Bist? i've read a little of his work. if so, does his approach touch on it?My main response to you is in relation to Judaism and cognitive-behavioral therapy; in particular, I have written on the many links between Rambam (Moshe ben Maimon, Maimonides) and the cognitive-behavioral school of psychology.
have you been to limmud (see http://www.limmud.org )? i recommend it....or at any rate, the US version of it.
