At a Glance

How did those of European Jewish heritage, who just generations earlier had been outcasts, emerge to play such a prominent role as influencers? And how did mass Jewish immigration to Central Europe from the Russian Empire ignite this process? Delve into the magnificent intellectual and artistic era of Central and Eastern Europe with Dr. Zoltán Pogátsa as he takes you on a learning adventure exploring the sociology behind the success of Jewish intellectuals and artists. He’ll spotlight the psychology of Sigmund Freud, the literature of Franz Kafka, the music of Gustav Mahler, the philosophy of Karl Popper and the politics of Viktor Adler, to name a few. Take a walk through an era of intellectual salons and journals, of long and heated debates and traditions centered around Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Berlin and Frankfurt. Zoltán will also discuss the emigration of Central and Eastern European Jews, and how that shaped intellectual life in America, especially in New York City.
