A symposium.

314 Royce Hall
Los Angeles, CA 90095

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.
