UM Frankel Center Event: Word and Deed: The Peripety of Logos in the New European Culture

January 21 @ 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Cost: Free

Word and Deed: The Peripety of Logos in the New European Culture

Arkady Kovelman, Moscow State University

The binary opposition of “word” (logos) and “deed” (ergon) underlay the development of European Civilization. This lecture will follow the birth of this opposition since Heraclitus and Aristotle to the Gospel of John and Early Rabbinic Literature (II-VII centuries). In the XVIII through XX centuries, this opposition modeled European aspiration to translate theory into practice, to embody philosophical logos into life.

There is both an accessible elevator and gender-neutral restroom on the first and second floor. If you have a disability that requires an accommodation, contact judaicstudies@umich.edu or 734-763-9047.
