The Pyramid or the Campfire? Moses and Monotheism in Martin Buber and Sigmund Freud

Samuel Hayim Brody studied political and social thought and Middle-Eastern studies at the University of Virginia before turning his attention to the study of traditional Jewish sources at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, where he received his master of arts degree. His Ph.D. in the History of Judaism is from the University of Chicago Divinity School, where he focused on the modern German-Jewish intellectual tradition while also studying philosophical hermeneutics, Christian exegesis, and varying conceptions of the relationship between religion and politics. He has previously taught at the University of Chicago and the University of Cincinnati. He is the author of the award-winning book, “Martin Buber's Theopolitics” (Indiana University Press, 2018).
