How to Answer a Fool: Civil Discourse in Rabbinic Sources
Hosted By: The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University
What is the best way to engage with those who appear to us to be ignorant or wicked? This lecture will explore biblical and rabbinic debates over the duty, utility, and virtue of answering a “fool” and what they can teach us about the possibilities and limitations of the disappearing art of civil discourse.
