A New Essay for Berfrois: “Bewildered and Bewildering: Animal Life and Jewishness in James Joyce, Franz Kafka and Shalom Auslander”

Unknown

This morning Berfrois published a piece I wrote entitled

“Bewildered and Bewildering: Animal Life and Jewishness in James Joyce, Franz Kafka and Shalom Auslander”

As one can see from the article it addresses “animal life” – a term borrowed from the philosopher GWF Hegel but used by Girogio Agamben and a tradition that threads its way through Greek thought, Christian Theology, and literature) – and its relation to “consciousness,” “conscience,” and “Jewishness.”  (I put all in “scare quotes” because I look into what their definitions are premised on and put them into question.)

Enjoy!
