Information
Jewish thought is, in many ways, a paradox. Is it theology or is it philosophy? Does it use universal methods to articulate Judaisms particularity or does it justify Judaisms particularity with appeals to illuminating the universal? These two sets of claims are difficult if not impossible to reconcile, and their tension reverberates throughout the length and breadth of Jewish philosophical writing, from Saadya Gaon in the ninth century to Emmanuel Levinas in the twentieth. Rethinking Jewish Philosophy offers a deeply felt exploration of Jewish philosophy and will prove to be an essential and enduring text in its field.
