Professor Shuster presents paper at the Continental Philosophy in a Jewish Context meeting

On October 23, 2014, Professor Shuster presented a paper titled, “Adorno and Negative Theology” at the meeting of the Continental Philosophy in a Jewish Context. The meeting is held under the auspices of the far larger Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy (SPEP). This year’s meeting was in New Orleans. With Professor Andrew Benjamin, Professor Shuster rounded out the program.

This was my first time at the Society for Continental Philosophy in a Jewish Context, and concomitantly it was actually also my first time at SPEP. I don’t know why it took me so long to find my way to both of these, since they were quite wonderful. The CPJC especially  offers a highly engaged, highly critical, and yet incredibly friendly forum to test out one’s ideas. I was especially glad for Annika Thiem‘s response, and the feedback I received I am certain will improve the book manuscript of which this forms the beginning chapter. Oh, and New Orleans and the French Quarter was quite lively…I now want to re-watch Treme!
