Reflections on Rabbi Jonathan Sacks’ presentation & Alasdair MacIntyre’s philosophy
Led by Rev. Sam Trumbore
Tuesdays, February 6 and 13, 7pm to 8:30pm
This is a follow-up class to Rev. Trumbore’s Jan. 21 service inspired by a lecture delivered by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks at the 2017 Chautauqua Institute. Rev. Trumbore will show the video of the lecture with pauses to discuss the ideas presented. Alasdair MacIntyre was featured as an important influence of Sacks’s critique so some time will be spent with his philosophy as well. As time permits, the class will dive into contemporary ethicists and their responses to Sacks and MacIntyre’s concerns.
