In A Jewish Philosophy of History, Prof. Paul Eidelberg unites three disciplines-politics, philosophy, and science-in reader-friendly language.

After a candid discussion of Israel's intellectual and political inability to overcome Arab hostility, Eidelberg sets forth a comprehensive remedial program. This requires nothing less than a reconstruction of the mentality as well as the system of governance that dominates Israel and hinders a renaissance of Hebraic civilization. This renaissance is essential for overcoming the clash of civilizations between the West now mired in relativism, and Islam long trapped in absolutism.

Eidelberg explains that Judaism is not a religion, but a verifiable system of knowledge. Citing the works of eminent physicists from Einstein to Hawking, he reveals the convergence of science and Torah. He then sets forth the world-historical program of the Torah.

But what is most remarkable, he proceeds to show how philosophers, scientists, and empires since the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 586 BCE, have unwittingly facilitated the Torah's world-historical program!

He concludes by elucidating the basic principles of Hebraic civilization, precisely what mankind needs to avoid the scourge of nihilism and barbarism.
