Description

The Hebrew Bible is a philosophical testament. Abraham, the first biblical philosopher, calls out to the world in God’s name exactly as Plato calls out in the name of the Forms.

 

Abraham comes forward as a critic of pagan thought about, specifically, persons. Moses, to whom the baton is passed, spells out the practical implications of the Bible’s core anthropological teachings.

 

In Persons and Other Things Mark Glouberman explores the Bible’s philosophy, roughing out in the course of a defence of it how men and women who see themselves in the biblical portrayal (as he argues that most of us do once the "religious" glare is reduced) are committed to conduct their personal affairs, arrange their social ties, and act in the natural world.

Persons and Other Things is also the author’s testament about the practice of philosophy. Glouberman sets out the lessons he has acquired as a lifelong learner about thinking philosophically, about writing philosophy, and about philosophers.
