Ontological Aspects of Early Jewish Anthropology : The Malleable Self and the Presence of God - image 1 of 1

About this item

Putthoff inquires into early Jewish beliefs and assumptions about how the human self reacts ontologically in God's presence. What did early Jews believe or assume to happen to the ontology of the self, he asks--that is, the nature, make-up, or stuff of the self--in the presence of God. He examines early Jewish writings that feature tales of or discussion about humans who undergo self-transformation before God, and seeks to understand why and how the self changes when it enters God's space. The study is a revision of his 2014 doctoral dissertation and Durham University. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
