Cuckoo's Nest - Noam 3, Tel Aviv,
On Friday the 30th of August we are honored to host Dr. Jeremy Fogel’s lecture on the philosophy of Frederick Nietzsche and Baruch Spinoza as part of the Think & Drink Different sessions at the Cuckoo’s Nest. For
“I condemn Christianity,” Nietzsche wrote, “I bring against the Christian Church the terrible guilt of any accusations he once expressed. Christianity is, in my view, the highest corruption imaginable … Christianity is the greatest curse … the one immortal stain on humanity “- The condemnation of one who considered himself a kind of antichrist, very much resembles in his arguments the thought of an equally radical philosopher, Baruch Spinoza. And if Nietzsche thought of himself as the anti-Christ, there are very good reasons to think of Spinoza as the anti-Moses. What do they both have in their strong criticism of the religious traditions against which they will come out? What do they share in the redemption they offer to those who abandon them? Some of the eternal ideas of two of the worst kids in the history of ideas – the Antichrist and the Anti-Moses!
Dr. Jeremy Fogel is a lecturer in the Department of Jewish Philosophy at Tel Aviv University, earned a degree in philosophy from Cambridge University and an MA in philosophy of religion cum laude Tel Aviv University. Was frontman wide punctuation.
