אסא כשר

Asa Kasher (Hebrew: אסא כשר‎, born on June 6, 1940) is an Israeli philosopher and linguist working as a Professor at Tel Aviv University[1] and at Shalem College,[2] Israel.

He is noted for authorship of Israel Defense Forces‘s Code of Conduct.[3] He wrote an influential defense of Israel’s ‘law of return‘, justifying it as a form of affirmative action, following periods in which Jews were not allowed to immigrate to many countries.[4][5]

He also wrote about possible meanings to a Jewish and democratic state, the meaning of a Jewish collective and many other essays.[6] His essays on Jewish subjects are collected in a book titled Ruach Ish (Spirit of a Man), published in Hebrew by Am Ovedpublication house. He is also the editor of the philosophy journal Philosophia.[7] Kasher has contributed as well to the fields ofpsychology and ethics.
