Dr. Samuelson is the Grossman Chair of Jewish Studies at Arizona State
University in the Department of Religious Studies. He is the founder and
secretary of the Academy of Jewish Philosophy. Dr. Samuelson's
scholarship focuses on Jewish philosophy and theology. He has written
extensively on both medieval and modern Jewish philosophy. In the field of
religion and science he has authored two major philosophical- theological works
that wrestle with the problem of creation: The First Seven Days: A
Philosophical Commentary on the Creation of Genesis (1992) and Judaism and the
Doctrine of Creation (1994). Professor Samuelson has been active in the
American Academy of Religion, the Association of Jewish Studies, the American
Theological Society, and the American Philosophical Association. In these
organizations he has articulated a distinctly Jewish way of doing philosophy
and demonstrated how to think creatively and precisely about the interface of
reason and faith.
