Book description

The second volume of The Cambridge History of Jewish Philosophy provides a comprehensive overview of Jewish philosophy from the seventeenth century to the present day. Written by a distinguished group of experts in the field, its essays examine how Jewish thinking was modified in its encounter with modern Europe and America and challenge longstanding assumptions about the nature and purpose of modern Jewish philosophy. The volume also treats modern Jewish philosophy's continuities with premodern texts and thinkers, the relationship between philosophy and theology, the ritual and political life of the people of Israel and the ways in which classic modern philosophical categories help or hinder Jewish self-articulation. These essays offer readers a multi-faceted understanding of the Jewish philosophical enterprise in the modern period.

Reviews

'This volume offers a 'big-tent' approach to the semantic and substantive questions of the overlapping categories of modern Jewish thought, theology, and philosophy … a generous view of the boundaries of the field lead to inclusion of themes and thinkers too often left out in earlier outlines of the 'canon', such as the theme of aesthetics, the contributions of Eastern European thinkers, and the relationship to the medievals. The book is organized thematically, and assumes a basic familiarity with the central figures in the history of Jewish thought in the modern period. It is a wise organizational choice that leads to fresh readings and pairings.'
