The Jewish Philosophy Reader is the first comprehensive anthology of classic writings on Jewish philosophy from the Bible to the present. Complementing the History of Jewish Philosophy (Routledge, 1997), the Reader is divided into four parts:
* Foundations and First Principles
* Medieval and Renaissance Jewish Philosophy
* Modern Jewish Thought
* Contemporary Jewish Philosophy
Each section is clearly introduced by the editors and includes writings from the leading figures of Jewish thought.
Major thinkers featured include:
· Baeck · Bergman · Borowitz · Buber · Cohen · Curley · Fledman · Frankel · Geiger · Goodman · Haberman · Hartman · Heschel · Hess · Israeli · Kellner · Kook · Leaman · Lesser · Levinas · Maimonides · Maybaum · Mayer · Morgan · Novak · Plasknow · Plaut · Ravven · Rosenzweig · Schatz · Scholem · Seekin · Spinoza · Stroumsa · Wolf · and Zunz
Ideal for introductory courses in Jewish studies and Jewish thought, The Jewish Philosophy Reader provides a thorough introduction to, and collection of, the leading writers and commentaries on the subject. It will be essential reading for both students and scholars of Jewish thought.
