Prof. Ronna Burger, Chair of the Department of Philosophy, is the Catherine and Henry J. Gaisman Chair in Judeo-Christian Studies. This chair was endowed through a generous gift of Catherine and Henry J. Gaisman. Prof. Burger’s intellectual path has taken her from an early interest in the Bible and its interpretation to Greek philosophy and most recently to the question of the relation between them. This path is reflected in her scholarly pursuits and her teaching at Tulane, where she has found an intellectual home for over three decades.
