About:

Lucas Scott Wright is a PhD student in the department of Religious Studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara. His current research focuses on modern Jewish thought, particularly in 19th century western Europe and the Weimar period in relation to contemporary trends in continental philosophy and medieval and renaissance mysticism. His current dissertation project is a study of the impact of Christian Kabbalah and F.W.J. Schelling’s Spätphilosophie on Franz Rosenzweig’s Der Stern der Erlösung and his notion of Neue Denken, and the question concerning the boundaries between interreligious dialogue and supersessionism. His research languages include German, French, and [in progress]  Medieval Hebrew, Biblical Hebrew, and Latin.
