Interviews with Professor Leibovitz, in two parts: on Science and Values and on State and Laws

“It is man’s will that makes him Man”. This phrase is the key to the thoughts of one of the most provocative thinkers of the end of this century, and the one that sets the tone for these discussions. Using vocabulary that can be understood by everyone, the philosopher opens himself up with a critical reflexion about what makes Man : his will power, his freedom, what he chooses, the tasks he sets himself, and how by “Triumphing over Oneself”, he goes above the others of this world.

“The honest man should know that he should never respect the law too closely”. Professor Y. Leibovitz, spiritual leader of the Israeli soldiers who refuse to carry out their military national service in the Occupied Territories, who has always been very attached to the notion of divine law, develops, a provocative position vis-à-vis the state in general, and power in particular. Following the traditions of the Prophetes, his caustic tone makes us think about our responsibilities as human beings and citizens.
