The Schabertian Way

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


I first met Tilo Schabert in the winter of 1996, at Jerusalem’s Mishkenot Sha’ananim, a lovely building located on the boundary between East and West Jerusalem. It hosts international artists, intellectuals and supporters of Israel’s cultural milieu. A “Professor Schabert” was scheduled to deliver a lecture about Plato’s Timeaus. I showed up with no prior acquaintance or introduction. In Tilo’s parlance, my entry point into our relationship was of a “spectator”, primarily interested in hearing a scholar’s take on Plato.² On the day scheduled for the lecture a terrorist blew himself up, taking with him to their deaths Israeli civilians.
