Aryeh Botwinick is Professor of Religion at Temple University. He is the author of Skepticism, Belief, and the Modern: Maimonides to Nietzsche (Cornell University Press, 1997), Michael Oakeshott’s Skepticism (Princeton University Press, 2011), and Emmanuel Levinas and the Limits to Ethics: A Critique and a Re-Appropriation (Routledge, 2014). His work focuses upon exploring the deep affinities and continuities between monotheism, skepticism, and liberalism—and how studying and theorizing them gives rise to new configurations for understanding both their history and their current potential.
