We have already made mention of the fact that classes on faith should avoid medieval “proofs” of God (and probably “proofs” of Torah composition). We should be primarily bringing thinkers who came after Kant and who deal with a reality of permanent agnosticism (in the sense that God cannot be proven, only intuited and felt). However, there are many thinkers whom we deliberately eschew because they held non-Orthodox positions, even though their insights are invaluable for believers in God of any stripe. In light of this, I would like to ask the following:
Should Machshevet Yisra’el classes include the (safer) works of thinkers like Heschel, Rozenzweig and Levinas? If so, at what age and in what context?
