Omri Boehm

  • Radical Universalism
  • Beyond identity
  • Lecture

Can universalism still be saved today? Yes, but we must return to its origins: only when we truly understand the humanist appeal of the biblical prophets and Immanuel Kant can we fight injustice without compromise – in the name of radical universalism, not identity.

In Radical Universalism (2022), Omri Boehm revolutionizes our fundamental understanding of what universalism is in the first place. In doing so, he invokes Kant and his often misunderstood revival of the ethical monotheism of the Jewish prophets – and opens a way out of the deadlocked identity debate.

Omri Boehm, born in Haifa in 1979, teaches as a professor of philosophy at the New School for Social Research in New York. He served in Israeli intelligence, conducted research in Munich and Heidelberg, among other places, and writes about Israeli politics for Haaretz, Die Zeit, and the New York Times.
