A History of Modern Religious Jewish Philosophy, 5 Volumes (Hebrew)

Author Eliezer Schweid
Language Hebrew
Publication year 2001
Publisher Am Oved

This set of books tells the story of the creation of Jewish religious philosophy in modern times, within the double context of the history of western philosophy and the history of the Jewish people living within western culture, from the period of the Haskalah until after the Shoah. This is a period when the large centers of the Jewish people in Europe arose again and then were extinguished, and when two new major centers arose in Israel and in the United States. This story is told through the struggle of the great Jewish philosophers and their life stories, reflecting the history of their people, and within the wider context of western philosophy. In this way, the philosophy of the Jewish religion is presented as one of the prominent currents of modern western philosophy.
