Stanford University historian Arie Dubnov reappraises the liberalism of Isaiah Berlin, perhaps the greatest public intellectual of the 20th century. Examining Berlin as an east European Jewish emigré as well as a British liberal intellectual, Dubnov stresses the tensions and conflict between his liberal philosophy and his pro-Zionist sentiments. In a special pre-festival presentation Dubnov shows how the great thinker and essayist struggled with the dilemmas of modern Jewish identity.
