Faith and Judgment: Hannah Arendt and Religious Critique

This seminar will examine the role intersubjectivity plays in Hannah Arendt’s theory of judgment, in order to explore ways in which her insights might help us understand religious communities as communities of judgment.   How do faith communities become sites from which to make critical judgments of society?   How, in turn, can members of such communities learn from and respond to criticisms that come from outside their faith community?
