About the author:

What does it take to be mensch? What does a liberal education have to offer those immersed in the Jewish tradition? What can the Hebrew Bible and Judaism teach that a robust liberal education can’t? And do Jews have something to learn from Gentiles when it comes to appreciation for sports? In conversation with his one-time student Eric Cohen, Leon Kass addresses these and other questions while telling of his intellectual progression from a Yiddish-speaking socialist home in Chicago to (metaphorically speaking) Athens and from there, both literally and figuratively, to Jerusalem. (Audio, 48 minutes. Options for download and streaming are available at the link below.)
