Machshavah Lab
R' Yitzchak Kanpanton and R. Waldo Emerson on Emunas Chachamim
Show Notes

This morning (5/13/22), in our "Machshavah Lab" series for women, we had an experimental shiur on the topic of "emunas chachamim." First we defined the quality of emunas chachamim based on R' Yitzchak Kanpanton's methodology sefer. We then compared and contrasted his approach to some of the ideas written about by Ralph Waldo Emerson in his speech, "The American Scholar." Judging by the discussion we had, this exercise resulted in some nice methodology insights, which is what I hoped would happen!
