At this workshop, part of the project, "Worship: A Jewish Philosophical Investigation," we will discuss invited and submitted papers on the theme, "Worship and the Divine". Questions to be addressed include:
What might make someone or something worthy of worship and another unworthy? What is worship, and how does it differ from other attitudes, such as deference, respect, and honor? Is there an attitude that is the “opposite” of worship, and is it ever appropriate? If God exists, what should our attitude be toward God? Would God’s existence make a difference to how humans ought to live? Why would a divine being call upon others to worship it? Does anyone have the authority to mandate worship? Can more than one thing be worthy of worship?
To submit an abstract, please see the associated CFA, or our website:
