This symposium will explore the image and role of the Jew in French philosophy after the Second World War. The lengthy, difficult, and oft-delayed response of France in coming to terms with the War has served as a broad intellectual backdrop against which the Jew surfaces as a key allegorical or symbolic figure. The symposium will bring together a distinguished group of scholars to analyze this tendency in post-War French thought.
