The Philosophy Club and the Department of Philosophy are co-hosting The Coffee Hour with Dr. Ernest Wolf-Gazo on Wednesday, November 4th from 1 to 2 PM at the Tim Sullivan Lounge.

The lecture is titled “Max Weber and the World Historical Significance of Ancient Egyptian Monotheism." It focuses on the historical significance of monotheism emerging in Ancient Egypt. The question is: to what extent does monotheism promote rationality in world history? The lecture makes clear that monotheism, in world history, presents a Janus Face (two faced), a strict belief in an exclusive Deity and the emergence of a formal rationality.  The sociology of religion, in the framework of Max Weber, will be contextualized in the analysis of monotheism as a world historical form of global consciousness.
