Bob Dylan: Prophet Without God by Prof. Jeff Green
May 15, 2024 at -

In Bob Dylan: Prophet Without God, political philosopher Jeffrey Edward Green provides an overarching account of the significance of the 2016 Nobel Prize laureate’s political, religious, and ethical ideas. Dylan speaks to ideals that have animated earlier prophets—social justice, individual freedom, and adherence to God—but breaks from past tradition by testifying to the conflicts between these ideals. Green shows how Dylan has made novel contributions to the meaning of self-reliance, the quest for rapprochement between the religious and non-religious, and the problem of how ordinary people might operate in a fallen political world.
