Abraham is a professor emeritus of philosophy at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Israel), and a Feldenkrais Practitioner.

In his philosophical work, Abraham specializes in the relationship between identity, selfhood, and the body, and, more specifically, in the ways in which practices shape persons and their identities.

Abraham’s books and scholarly articles are phenomenological studies of basic human experiences, such as being in the world and using tools, as well as of artistic creation and practices that are exercised in the public sphere, such as truth-telling (whistleblowing). Most recently, he has published on intersections of the Feldenkrais Method with the cultural domain as representative of a wider “somatic turn” of Western culture.

Abraham’s work has been published widely in academic journals, and his publications are quoted extensively in books and professional journals of diverse fields of knowledge. In Israel, his work has been highly praised, and he has received grants for his research from a variety of sources, among them the Richard Koebner Minerva Center, the Edmond Rothschild Foundation, and The Israel Science Foundation (ISF), founded by the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities.

As an accreditated Feldenkrais Practitioner, Abraham has taught and directed workshops at venues in Europe (Barcelona and Berlin) and Mexico. In his private practice in Israel, he works with groups and in person-to-person lessons with people interested in self-healing and transformation.

In his forthcoming book, The Feldenkrais Method: Power of Self-Transformation, Abraham threads together the themes of selfhood, identity, and the body, with a somatic practice.
