The genius of Judaism by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than four decades, Bernard-Henri Lévy has been a singular figure on the world stage--one of the great moral voices of our time. Now Europe's foremost philosopher and activist confronts his spiritual roots and the religion that has always inspired and shaped him--but that he has never fully reckoned with. The Genius of Judaism is a breathtaking new vision and understanding of what it means to be a Jew, a vision quite different from the one we're used to. It is rooted in the Talmudic traditions of argument and conflict, rather than biblical commandments, borne out in struggle and study, not in blind observance. At the very heart of the matter is an obligation to the other, to the dispossessed, and to the forgotten, an obligation that, as Lévy vividly recounts, he has sought to embody over decades of championing "lost causes," from Bosnia to Africa's forgotten wars, from Libya to the Kurdish Peshmerga's desperate fight against the Islamic State, a battle raging as we speak. Lévy offers a fresh, surprising critique of a new and stealthy form of anti-Semitism on the rise as well as a provocative defense of Israel from the left. He reveals the overlooked Jewish roots of Western democratic ideals and confronts the current Islamist threat while intellectually dismantling it. Jews are not a "chosen people," Lévy explains, but a "treasure" whose spirit must continue to inform moral thinking and courage today. Lévy's most passionate book, and in many ways his most personal, The Genius of Judaism is a great, profound, and hypnotic intellectual reckoning--indeed a call to arms--by one of the keenest and most insightful writers in the world."--Jacket

The XXIV International Congress of Psychology was held at the Darling Harbor Convention Centre in Sydney, Australia, from August 28 through September 2, 1988. Sponsored by the International Union of Psychological Science, the congress was an official activity of the Australian Bicentennial. Approximately 3,800 psychologists from around the world attended the meeting. Of these, approximately 500 were from the United States. The congress program consisted of the following types of presentations: (1) keynote addresses (N=22, including 7 from USA); (2) invited speakers (N=60, including 30 from USA); (3) symposia (N=165, with a total of 980 individual papers); (4) young psychologists (N=64, including 12 sponsored by APA); (5) contributed papers (N=951 full presentations; N=311 title-only presentations); and (6) workshops (N=37). The Congress was organized by a Congress Committee appointed by the Australian Psychological Society. Program suggestions were solicited from the member institutions of the IUPsyS. The US member, the US National Committee for the IUPsyS (organized within the National Research Council), undertook to provide detailed program suggestions to the organizers. Many of these suggestions were accepted, resulting in a scientific program of the highest quality. In collaboration with and on behalf of the USNC/IUPsyS, the American Psychological Association conducted a travel a travel awards program to assist individual US scientists in attending the Congress.
