Jewish Conceptions of Human Creativity

Session 5
Advanced Course

There are many divergences between Jewish and pagan understandings of work and creativity, including the Sabbath and the imperative for creation. While classical republican assumptions influenced some Christian views of economics, Jewish theology was friendly towards commerce, foreshadowing and contributing to later pro-market understandings among Catholics, Protestants, and philosophers like John Locke and Adam Smith.
