Kabbalah and Scientific Progress

DATE AND LOCATION
Cheshvan 20, 5766 | November 21, 2005 at Stanford University, California
SUMMARY
One of the most revolutionary ideas proposed by modern science is that it is not the sun that revolves around us, but we that revolve around the sun. The response of the holy Rabbi Israel of Ruzhin to this idea, dubbed heliocentrism, provides the basis for a seminal discussion of the impact of Kabbalah on science (and vice versa). Heliocentrism and the geocentrism it replaced are discussed in terms of the Divine service of the Tzadikim, the righteous leaders of the generation.
