The Origins of Life and Language in Kabbalah

The Origins of Life and Language in Kabbalah
Lecture by Dr. Gabriel Levy

The lecture will describe the origins and development of Kabbalah. It poses the question whether any sense can be made of Kabbalah from a modern, secular perspective. The radical monism represented in some forms of Jewish esotericism can possibly help us make sense of the relationship between life and language. The talk will focus, in particular, on the life and language of intimacy.
