Yiftach Fehige
Philosopher and Theologian

Welcome to my personal website! I appreciate the opportunity you are giving me to share with you my research interests and scholarship.

My work falls within the interdisciplinary field of science and religion. The focus of my research is on Christianity and Judaism, and I am mostly interested in philosophical and theological matters, both historically and systematically. What intrigues me the most are topics related to thought experiments, human sexuality, and the relationship between Christianity and Judaism. I just began work on a new research project on scientific pluralism vs. religious pluralism.

I received most of my academic training in Germany, before moving to Canada, and after several years in Israel. Since 2006 the University of Toronto has been my academic home. I hold tenure at the rank of Associate Professor in the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology.

Much of my work reflects a great appreciation of thought experiments. This image shows Niels Bohr’s attempt at capturing the scenario in one of Einstein’s thought experiments.
