Abstract

© 2019 by Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, The Netherlands. This essay contextualizes Thurman's "Jesus" within academia and the larger Western milieu of the 1940-1950s. Thurman offered a usable construction in order to encourage people to eliminate their "fear" of the other, discourage their use of "deception" as a strategy of survival, and replace their "hate" with love for the other, as a means of maintaining their own human dignity for the purpose of thriving in an American society that preferred their ghettoized isolation and dehumanized existence.
