The Discipline of Philosophy and the Invention of Modern Jewish Thought [9780823244973]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Exploring the subject of Jewish philosophy as a controversial construction site of the project of modernity, this book examines the implications of the different and often conflicting notions that drive the debate on the question of what Jewish philosophy is or could be.

The idea of Jewish philosophy begs the question of philosophy as such. But Jewish philosophy does not just reflect what philosophy lacks. Rather, it challenges the project of philosophy itself.

Examining the thought of Spinoza, Moses Mendelssohn, Heinrich Heine, Hermann Cohen Franz Rosenzweig, Martin Buber, Margarete Susman, Hermann Levin Goldschmidt, and others, the book highlights how the most philosophic moments of their works are those in which specific concerns of their Jewish questions inform the rethinking of philosophy's disciplinarity in principal terms.

The long overdue recognition of the modernity that informs the critical trajectories of Jewish philosophers from Spinoza and Mendelssohn to the present emancipates not just Jewish philosophy from an infelicitous pigeonhole these philosophers so pointedly sought to reject but, more important, emancipates philosophy from its false claims to universalism.
