 Averroes, Maimonides and Spinoza:

The Possibilities of the Human Spirit

 January 11th-February 8th

 1:30-3:30 pm

 

Spinoza is often presented as having laid the foundations for modernity, but he is standing on the shoulders of two sons of Cordova, the Muslim philosopher Averrores and his contemporary, Maimonides.  Averrores and Maimonides lived at the end of the Golden Age of Al-Andalus and Spinoza was a child of the generation (both Jews and Muslims) exiled from Spain.  They all were born one place and died another, experiencing migration and resisting intellectual oppression.  What may they say to us today?
