The Jewishness of Key Intellectuals and Cultural Figures of Our Times

On December 3rd, December 18th, January 2nd, and January 15th Professor Irwin Wall will be looking at the “Jewishness” of Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein and Franz Kafka. All four were born ethnically Jewish and culturally German. To what extent did they identify as Jews, what role did their Jewish origins play in determining the course of their careers, and to what extent did their understanding of Judaism and Jews influence their life work?
